    are you talking about things like at Smiley Central or the like?

    if i remember right you right click on the icon and that give you the properties. you copy and paste that into the reply and then it shows up as the icon once you click on the reply button.

    only thing is i cant get it to work in an email. it just shows the url when i try to email

    Now that I read the question a little Sloooowwer .. I think you’re right.

    Here’s How Angle did it.
    Go Advanced … Click on “Insert Image” … Then enter (Paste) the link to where the Image resides.

    The Image Can’t be uploaded here … but must reside somewhere else.

    Like so …

    Hi Galium: That comes from a site that allows direct linking...if a site doesn't do that and you post an image from it that is considered stealing bandwidth! ;) Here is the smiley site that allows direct linking I use:

    http://bestsmileys.com/

    [​IMG]

    To use any smiley off their site..left click the url tag to the left of the images, hold and drag to the right until the whole tag is highlighted, release left click and copy the img tags (Press Ctrl and the letter "C" keys)....then simply paste (Press Ctrl and the letter "V" keys) it in your post! :)

    Or per the site instructions:

    Take your mouse, drag it along the text on the left until it is highlighted.

    Right click on your mouse, select "copy" from the box.

    Go to the post you are making, right click again, choose "paste" from the box.
