Subject: freeze on spell check
Feedback Type: Problem
Product Area: Notes Client
Technical Area: Crash
Platform: Windows
Release: 8.5.1
Reproducible: Intermittent

I upgraded all our Notes clients to 8.5.1 last week and have had 3 staff experience Notes freeze on sending emails after the automatic spell check has run. Restarting Windows (or ending all Notes processes) is the only way to get out.

Today I showed a someone how to turn off the automatic spell check and how to run them manually - and it froze. So, as far as I can see it is the actual spell check that is doing this.

I haven't been able to see any similarity of email content so far but it has happened when using stationery, replies with history, forwarding and when pasting content into the body.

Our servers are on 8.5.1 FP1. FP1 for the client hasn't fixed this. Our mail design is 7.0.3

Has anyone else had this problem - any ideas how to fix or what to check for?
