KMail emoticons


I fired up KMail last night and was very impressed. One of the best, IMHO, e-mail clients I've seen.
I found a switch that says, "Replace smileys by emoticons." However, I cannot find anything in documentation or on the KDE web site on how to find and insert either smileys or emoticons in an outgoing e-mail. Is this one of the things where you are just suppose to "knpw" the keyboard sequence, e.g., ;-) ?
Thanks.

My understanding is that this function operates on emails as you view them (stuff you have received). It does not affect outgoing mail afaik.

That seems correct. It's a pure visual thing, where "; - )" is replaced with a and ": - )" is replaced with a and so on...

For outgoing emails, all you have to do is type the ; - ) sequence without the spaces, and if your recepient (either on Mac, Linux or Windows) has similar functionality on her/his MUA, it'll show up as a smiley..
