Useful tips for MacOS X and iOS: enable Greek spelling and image attachments in Mail.app, sync notes on iPhone with Exchange

Regarding the Mail.app, Greek spelling can be added fairly easy by just downloading the cocoAspell application (currently in version 2.1) and the Greek dictionary from the same website. At the end, you just have to enable the dictionary via System Preferences -> Spelling.

Unfortunately, Outlook 2011 is still immature not only in handling Unicode characters but also in incorporating spelling. In addition, cocoAspell cannot be used it is not a cocoa application. However, users that prefer using Outlook 2011 over the standard Mail.app can download the necessary proofing tools in order to add Greek spelling on Word 2011 (having to copy-paste between the applications).

In order to disable or re-enable inline image attachments on the Mail.app, you have to enter the following, respectively, through the Terminal to set the preference:
– defaults write com.apple.mail DisableInlineAttachmentViewing -bool yes
– defaults write com.apple.mail DisableInlineAttachmentViewing -bool false

Finally, regarding the minor issue on iPhone about the lack of the ability to sync notes in Exchange, a solution already exists by using the iMExchange 2 application (currently in version 1.0.3), which can be found in the App Store for both iPhone and iPad.
