A certain word processor will then go on and stretch your interword space and even interletter space within words. TeX doesn't do that and will let words stick out to warn you. If you don't want to / can't edit the text, you'll have to allow it to be less strict. You should read about \setuptolerance in cont-eni, section 4.13.

You can tell TeX to stretch the interword space, version 3 introduced
the \emergencystretch comand, you can use it in ConTeXt with

   \setupalign[stretch]

or

   \setuptolerance[horizontal,stretch]

In combination with protrusion and font expansion this prevents nearly
all overfull boxes in the running text (at least for me).
