You can install additional dictionaries with Synaptic, search for "aspell" packages.
Unfortunately, dictionary system that Evolution uses doesn't support Czech.

The dictionary also doesn't seem to support "Australian".

organiSation, coloUr, are the two that immediately annoy me with the US dict.

anyone know if there's a way to use the Firefox dict in Evolution?

@ Mateusz

Thanks for the heads up about additional dictionary files in synaptic. I didn't realize I had to install the desired/required language pkg(s) after installing aspell itself.

Sometimes we overlook what some would consider the obvious. What was obvious is there was no outright indication this was necessary. Oh well, live and learn. Now I'll be able to pass this info along to anyone I run across with the same problem. ;) Again, thanks for posting your comment! Solved my problem.
