    I also prefer dispatched, I think despatched look very odd indeed.

    When i read the emails in my head, i actually pronounce the word despatch and dispatch differently. When i talk and mention the word, i always pronounce it the same way as i do the word dispatch.

    Im actually going to be the first to admit that i never knew both ways were correct and assumed despatch was an error! Oops.

    I think its mainly because i shop a lot online and most sites/sellers use dispatch when they send you emails so thats the one i am most used to seeing.
