If your answer is no, then this blog is only for you as it will let you know how you can go ahead and add smiley and emoticons to your Yahoo Mail. By doing so, you can express your emotions to your friend, colleague or family member. Let’s see how to add smiley and emoticon in the Yahoo Mail. Remember that rich text format should be enabled before you actually try to insert the smiley and emoticons in the content body. It is not possible to insert smiley and emoticon on the subject line.
Log on to the Yahoo Mail account and sign-in. If you don’t have an account on Yahoo Mail, you can sign up for free. Compose a new mail. Make sure that you are using the rich text format. Compose the entire message in the body and put the cursor of the mouse where you wish to insert the emoticon or graphical representation image. Now, click on “Insert emoticons” or “GIF” picker button. Select the desired emoticon or the GIF image from the collections and click on it. It will be added in the same place where your cursor is. Now send the mail and you are done.
If your recipient has configured his email in a plain text format then they won’t be able to read the mail properly as they will miss all the emoticons inserted by you. However, most of the users stick with the rich text format so chances are they will see the entire emoticons and the graphical representations sent by you.
Yahoo has recently launched a new Yahoo Mail version in which you won’t see any insert emoticon option or button at all. Even if you enter the exact code of the emoticon it is possible that it might not work properly. The insert emoticon option has been replaced by GIF picker, in which you can select GIFs available on the Yahoo server and send it to your recipients and they would be able to see it as it is. Remember, if the recipients are using a slow or a congested connection then it may take some time to load the GIFs sent by you. It is recommended that even if you have inserted emoticons and GIFs to the mail, you should read the entire mail carefully before sending it to the recipient. It will prevent the potential miscommunication in between you and your recipient.
