    Re: Download all the Smilies

    <img src=/S/thankyou.gif border=0 alt=thankyou width=40 height=15>Lief! Some time ago I saw a thread that gave instructions on how to use smilies in Outlook etc. I've tried searching a number of forums, but to no avail. Can you give me some clues? If I attach one of these files to an e-mail it shows up as a ugly icon. If you double-click on the icon then the browser window opens and the smilie is there! How do I get these to show up in the message itself? <img src=/S/thankyou.gif border=0 alt=thankyou width=40 height=15> <img src=/S/cheers.gif border=0 alt=cheers width=30 height=16>

    Re: Download all the Smilies

    You don't want to attach, you want to insert.

    File > New > Mail Message
    (Make sure you are using HTML format)
    Fill in the Recipient and Subject fields.
    Click within the body of the message then:
    Insert > Picture . . .

    Re: Download all the Smilies

    Ahh, but there be the problem. In my Insert Menu I only have have 'File' 'Item' 'Object' and 'Signature' choices. No Insert -> Picture.

    Under Tools ->Options ->Mail Format the 'send in this format' box is grayed out. I assume this is where I turn HTML on/off. Funny because I receive messages in HTML format, I guess I just can't send them. If I could insert a [sob] smilie here I would.

    Re: Download all the Smilies

    Are you using an elderly version of Outlook? - seems to be no problem here using Ol2000/2002.

    Unless . . . [scary_music.wav] . . . you are using Word as your email editor?

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by Bowlie on 30-Oct-02 17:04. forgot to answer the question!)</P>Gee, would you call Outloo 98 elderly? <img src=/S/cranky.gif border=0 alt=cranky width=18 height=25> Well before the <img src=/S/money.gif border=0 alt=money width=17 height=15> budget cuts, I was going to get a new PC and everyone was going to get XP.

    Re: Download all the Smilies

    Maybe your installation of Outlook 98 is incomplete or damaged. I still use Outlook 98, and in Tools/Options/Mail Format, I can select HTML, RTF, plain text and Microsoft Word in the "Send mail in this format" combo box.
    When I compose a mail in HTML format, I can insert pictures etc.; the menu is almost the same as posted by Leif.

    Re: Download all the Smilies

    Hi Leif

    Don't know about Netscape, but in Mozilla1.1, once you have opened the "Smilies Window", and waited for the page to completely load, you can Right Click on the page and select "Save page as...".
    Works for me anyway.
    Thanks for the download info....

    Have a Great day!!!
    Ken

    Re: Download all the Smilies

    That's what they have done! But the very helpful help desk fellow told me that I can get around it. <img src=/S/doh.gif border=0 alt=doh width=15 height=15> If I go:

    Actions -> New Mail Message using -> No Stationary I end up with a HTML formatted blank message. I can then:
    Insert -> Picture.

    The administrator taketh away and the help desk givith!

    Re: Download all the Smilies

    Just dropped by this forum and stumbled upon this post. I read the rules (admittedly I hadn't) and after checking the smilies, I'm trying to find a courteous use for the RTFM one (that is, to comply with rule # 9 - 'Just try to be courteous'). Maybe when speaking ironically about an instruction hid deep in a user-not-so-friendly manual... Just guessing.
    Apart from that, smilies are great. A great improvement over the number of smilies and flags to pick from has been done from the fist time I used them.

    Keep going like that!

    Re: Download all the Smilies

    I think I've used it when I didn't RTFM and should have... usually in conjunction with <img src=/S/bingo.gif border=0 alt=bingo width=15 height=22> <img src=/S/rtfm.gif border=0 alt=rtfm width=24 height=23>
    have fun

    And you think there's a polite use for <img src=/S/bash.gif border=0 alt=bash width=35 height=39> <img src=/S/bif.gif border=0 alt=bif width=70 height=28> <img src=/S/liar.gif border=0 alt=liar width=25 height=22> <img src=/S/moon.gif border=0 alt=moon width=15 height=15> <img src=/S/nuts.gif border=0 alt=nuts width=15 height=15> <img src=/S/puke.gif border=0 alt=puke width=60 height=15> <img src=/S/sarcasm.gif border=0 alt=sarcasm width=15 height=15> <img src=/S/scold.gif border=0 alt=scold width=50 height=15> <img src=/S/toilet.gif border=0 alt=toilet width=24 height=26> and <img src=/S/tongue.gif border=0 alt=tongue width=15 height=15> ?

    Re: Download all the Smilies

    I see-- your help I appreciate. Methinks a little more forethought from my part coulda prevented my posting... But then I woulda missed your enlightenment (awright, am I being polite or what?? <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>)
    BTW, She-Wolf.... err no, wait... Megadeth is taking over again.... Lady Wolf, have you noticed how ... <img src=/S/stupidme.gif border=0 alt=stupidme width=30 height=30> ... suggestive ... <img src=/S/thankyou.gif border=0 alt=thankyou width=40 height=15> ... smilies can be?

    Re: Download all the Smilies

    Oh, My, now I'm in real trouble! I can think of a polite use for <img src=/S/nuts.gif border=0 alt=nuts width=15 height=15> but these being too many are way more than my mind would ever handle at 1 a.m.!
