A spell check is definitely a useful tool, but it doesn't necessarily have human intuition to catch all errors. So, no matter how great your spell check is, remember that there is simply no substitute for a careful, human read-through.
Just like any other piece of poor writing, an email full of mistakes can do damage to your credibility, which can be devastating for anyone trying to do business on web. On Internet, people have to rely on written communication, and if yours isn't effective, your business and your image will suffer.
If you don't feel you have grammatical expertise to catch all errors yourself, get a co-worker or friend to do it for you. Even experienced writers often need a second pair of eyes to catch little mistakes.
