Spell checking should work with no customization, if you have installed
cocoAspell.  Use
M-x locate-library ispell
to ensure that you're using the version of ispell.elc bundled with
Aquamacs.  Also try spell checking in Aquamacs launched without
customizations, under Help-->Diagnose and Report Bug, and see if the
behavior is the same.

Have you used or configured aspell at all, apart from installing cocoAspell?

What's the value of ispell-use-cocoaspell in an Aquamacs session where you
haven't activated or loaded (or required) ispell?

We'll get this sorted out.
