Insert emoticons smiley faces in your Yahoo Mail email messages

Emoticons and smiley faces in Yahoo Mail In addition to regular text and formatting, you can add to your emails smiley faces (emoticons) to express emotions instead of internet acronyms obscure to some people. In this tutorial, we will show you how to insert faces and icons inside an email message, and talk about the implications it has depending on the settings the email recipient is using, download speed, and other lateral concerns.

Add a smiley face / emoticon to emails in Yahoo Mail

Follow these steps to spice up your email message with some icons:

Will everyone be able to see your smileys? Why not?

There are two ways to send and receive emails: in plain text or in rich formatting. If someone (one of your email recipients) has configured their email program to read all emails in plain text, they will not be able to see the smiley icons you have inserted in your message, so ideally make sure that the email can be understood without them. In reality, the overwhelming majority of people use their email program (like Outlook Express, Windows Mail , or Windows Live Mail) or webmail client (like Hotmail or Gmail) with images and rich text formatting enabled - in other words they'll see your emoticons.

On another note: the smiley faces you include in emails composed from Yahoo Mail are actually references to images on Yahoo's servers, which will need to be downloaded when someone reads your email; so, if they are using a slow or congested internet connection, your message may take some time to load if you went overboard with smileys!
