This means `message-mode' is the active `major-mode' and MML, Abbrev,
Fill and Narrow are enabled minor modes.  (The so-called lighters in the
mode-line don't need to correspond exactly to the mode name.)

The problem is that the hook is actually named `message-mode-hook' so

  (dolist (hook '(message-mode-hook ...))
    (add-hook hook #'flyspell-mode))

will do the trick.

Hm, that seems to be an aspell configuration problem.  Or do you have
any configurations to flyspell-* or ispell-* variables in Emacs?
