Hi,
Is there a way of adding extra emoticons to SeaMonkey mail. Smileinserter Plus wouldn't install, and PostSmile didn't seem to work.
Thanks,
..... john

Yes, of course you can:

The "insert smiley face" icon on the options bar provides numerous emoticons. Otherwise, you can <copy> <paste>.

Hi TPR75
So, if I understand you right, if I enter these punctuation combinations, a graphic representing the meaning will show up in the receiver's mail?
or
I can copy and paste them from the Wikipedia link?

Possible, but unlikely. Unless you pick a simple one, like this - : P - :P

What you actually need is the Thunderbird extension called emoji. Pick an old version that works with T/Bird 60 max, download it and run it through the SM Convertor - viewtopic.php?f=40&t=2834855

Text emoticon is better emoticon... (^0_0^)

Like Frank Lion wrote only simple text emoticons can be converted to image emoticons. And receiver must have enabled such function otherwise he/she will see text emoticons.

Hi Frank,
"What you actually need is the Thunderbird extension called emoji. Pick an old version that works with T/Bird 60 max, download it and run it through the SM Convertor" Frank Lion
Well, that worked very well. I downloaded and converted "emoji_menu-2.0-tb.xpi" and installed it without incident. What I have now is a smiley icon sitting beside the normal one, with a huge number of emojis
So ........ Thanks!!
