    windows live mail and emoticons

    Does anyone know if there is a way to ADD emoticons to messages (apart from
    the series included in the program)
    In outlook Express I used to include animated gifs in my messages that were
    fun, and seems impossible to do (they appear too big and only a still
    picture)...
    Thanks for any suggestions...

    I liked to do that in OE too & finally found out how it's done in WLM. On
    the message window go to Insert-Image-Inline & click on open. They don't
    move in the email but have checked sent emails & they are moving in those.
    If u don't have the usual File Edit etc go to the letter icon beside the ? &
    that adds the menu.

    Yes that does work quite well! Thanks
    In the mean time I found another way to do it: I setup a program called
    PostSmile (you can drag the smileys directly from it) Of course you have to
    use the smileys that come with the program, or download new ones on their
    website: I can't send all my old animated gifs....
