For computer related email I just live with the false positives on all
of the non-english computer terms.  If I were to insert all of the
terms into my dictionary then most of those would come back later and
be false negatives when they really were spelling errors.  So I just
live with it.

Normally I don't use any spell checker at all.  And sometimes that
bites me because I have been making more spelling errors of late.
When I do run the spell I run ispell-region over my response (and not
over the quoted material) and then quickly space through the false
positives.  For me that works best.
