Found this in one of my searches. Thought it applied here. By the way, I've had my share of embarrassing unedited emails that have gone out. Enjoy!

Spell checking software approves. Try it in yours and you'll be amazed. Spell checking software is a good start, but it's not the final destination. Don't overlook the necessity of editing and proofreading in the writing process.

An editor would know the appropriate corrections to make.

To Our Valued Customer:

We received your e-mail about your missing shipment and are so sorry for any inconvenience we may have caused. We're not sure how your order got misplaced here, but we're looking into it. We'll ship it right out for you today from our warehouse. Thanks for understanding.

Weather eye am wrong oar write -

And eye can put awl eras rite,
Its rare lea ever wrong.
Eye have run this poem threw it,
I am shore yaw pleas too no,
Its let a purr fact awl the weigh.
My chequer tolled me sew.
