    HAPPY / SAD FACE (windows xp)

    This may turn out to be a VB subject? When I send an email via company / corporate mail I like to attach a happy or sad face at the end. To do this I open a Microsoft word document that has both faces, after selecting the face and using Ctrl C to copy I then have to get back to the email and use the Ctrl V to get the selected face is there a macro to do this? I really like your options here of the smilies and I use them. Any one got some useful suggestions on this request ? Thanks Richard Memphis.

    Try using :-) & :-(. There is usually an autocorrect entry to change to the smilie.

    I don't use Outlook, but would suspect that ther is an Insert option at the top of the New Message window on the same bar as File, Edit, View, etc..... with an option in the dropdown to insert a picture which when clicked should open a window with a Browse button to find the image you want to add on your system.

    There is an insert and something about an object and seems once I get there I never can make the correct choice, will try again. Thank you for the input. Richard <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    It should work for both. If either does not work you can edit your Autocorrect settings and add what you need.

    Re: HAPPY / SAD FACE (windows xp)

    I might have a better solution to this, as it is something I do all the time with my emails in Outlook Express.

    My signature is Best wishes followed by a small graphic of my name (Michael). But there is no reason why it should not be just a smiley face

    The method I used was in c:Program filesOutlook Express I pasted my graphic. Then in Word I created a document saying Best wishes and on the next line I inserted the graphic and saved it as an HTMl file (I called it best wishes.htm), in the same folder. If you just want a smiley face, then you don't even need a graphic

    In Outlook express in Tools>signatures I created a new signature. Clicked on the file box in the Edit window and browsed to the htm file I created in c:Program filesOutlook Express, and then clicked OK to finish

    I didnít bother to click on ďadd signature to all out going messages so now when Iíve finished an email I click on Insert>Signature and that it.

    If you would like to see what it looks like send me an email and I will reply.

    I hope this helps

    Re: HAPPY / SAD FACE (windows xp)

    Sorry to appear to be in Spanner Insertion Mode, but is it commonplace in US 'company/corporate emails' to include smiley faces?

    I would not be overly impressed with a work email from any IBC Wonder Hostess (whatever one of those is!), or anyone else, containing smiley faces of any type - but then again, it might just be one's natural British reserve...

    I agree with BATcher and I am on the US side of that big piece of water to the East.

    Out here near the that piece of water to the West, we do not care to have cute, funny or etc included in any Business mail, email or advertisement.

    I will NOT do business with them if they (the company) does. <img src=/S/sad.gif border=0 alt=sad width=15 height=15>

    I agree that smilies are generally inapropriate with business e-mail. However, if you know your audience it could be OK. It could also be personal e-mail using the company PC.

    Not to mention that appropriateness has nothing to do do with the question being asked <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>
