Don't spell check email addresses and URLs

Whenever I send a message, the spell-check always flags up parts of
email addresses and URLs.How can these be excluded from the spell
check.

Not sure how tied together outlook and word spell checkers are, but
outlook does not have
"Ignore Internet File Address" option which sounds like it might be
what I want, maybe.

These are the settings for Outlook spell check. I have seen other
spell check S/W that knows strings starting w/ "http://" are URLs and
can thus skip the check. You could also argue that (e-mail address removed) is
a recognizable email and could also be skipped in a check.

I need to clarify:
When a link is entered as:
mailto://[email protected] OR
http://bbbbbbbb.gggg.com/page

Outlook immediately converts to 'real' links, and spell check is smart
enough to skip these, but when I type a link or email (as I assume
most people do, I type:

(e-mail address removed) OR
bbbbbbbb.gggg.com/page

These are not converted and spell check marks them as misspelled. So
the questions becomes is there a way to have Outlook skip the latter
format OR less desirable convert them to 'real' links before sending.
