    WLM 2011 wont permit emoticons

    I am using W7 and Windows Live Mail 2011 -- apparently it is blocking emoticons from received emails.
    Is there a way to remedy this?
    Many thanks, Mima

    Try unchecking Block images and other external content in HTML email; at Options, Safety Options, Security, Download Images.

    Perhaps upgrading the newer version, WLM 2012 would help as well.

    WLM 2011 wont permit emoticons

    I had already unchecked "Block Images" but no good.
    Any other suggestions ? I am loathe to upgrade to WLM 2012 because it took me awhile to adjust to the pecularities of WLM 2011 and I finally got used to it.
    Thank You

    WLM 2012 works almost identically to 2011, it just fixes some problems. I doubt you will notice a difference. I did not.

    If I upgrade to WLM 2012, do I still uncheck BLOCK IMAGES or is there something else to do?
    Thanks
