  It's pretty simple. If your speller is called myspell, use:

    What now? edit myspell

  MH will actually execute:

    myspell /your-mail-draft-directory/draftfile

  and give the entire draft message to your speller. The header will
  probably be "misspelled," of course, though you might be able to
  tell the speller to ignore it--or you could hack up a little shell
  script to run the speller on just the message body, then tack the
  corrected body back onto the header before sending.

  You can automate this some more. For example, if you want your
  speller to run after your first edit with "prompter" and also after
  you leave the "vi" editor, add these lines to your MH profile:

      prompter-next: myspell
      vi-next: myspell

  Then, at the "What now?" prompt:

      What now? e

  your speller will run. For more info, see the mh-profile(5) man page
  or section 7.2.1 (6.2.1) of the MH book, or the URL:
