Send This R5 Memo W/O Spell Checking It

Gotta love the Notes R5 automatic spell checker when you send a mail message.
But it takes forever for the spellchecker to load. To send the current memo
without checking the spelling, create a new action button in the Memo form (as
well as the Reply forms) and add this code to delete the $AutoSpell field.

When you want to send + spell, click the usual button or press Esc. To send
only, click this new action button instead. Because $AutoSpell isn't available,
the spellchecker won't run for this memo only.
FIELD $AutoSpell:=@DeleteField;
FIELD ActionInProgress:=MEMO_SEND;
