Fun email on AOL

  2rich 00:25 12 Jul 2003

This is another small problem that a silver surfer just cannot fathom. I use AOL.
Using AOL email, I wish to create "fun emails," when sending them to grandchildren.
Just how do I get the expressions on to the email?
I have tried for hours but fail all the time. I could ask the children but that would probably have them in stitches---again.

I've been trying for the past 20 minutes, no luck using version 8! looks like you will have to ask the children for both of us! ;o)

I don't think you can. You can have fancy stationary, but you can't put smileys in

Hi. Thanks for the info. from all of you. I don't feel so stupid now. But why are the smiley's there AND it does say create fun email.
Thanks all

On the right hand side of the 'Write EMail' window there is a button 'EMail Extras'. Just press for the xtras.

Or so I'm told.

Thanks BillEmm.
I tried asking AOL, and they said that it had not been added yet. But would be soon.
I will try your method though, anything to get one over the children.

They don't work, only for IM use. I think it's a feature that will be released later this year. Regards. j.
