Heather describes how they skip resumes at Microsoft that have spelling errors. I've also found it pays off to spell correctly when writing anything. Unless you're doing a "teh kewl" ad or banner, but even in that case, you'd better know really well what you're doing. So the basic rule of business writing is: spell correctly. Because spelling shows you can have, as also discussed by Heather and the comments, attention to detail, which is a prerequisite to... anything, really, in my view.
