Just wondering if it is possible for Evolution to display the smileys

Assumed you allow to display HTML text, then you still need to install
the Windows font that provides a :) instead of a J. At the moment I
allow Evolution to display HTML formatted emails, but I don't have
Windows fonts installed, so I don't know if Evolution does chose the
correct font, when it's installed.

To edit mails you need to format in HTML and use the Windows font that
provides a :) instead of a J. AFAIK you can't choose a font using
Evolution's editor, but you can use an external editor.

No, I don't know a HTML editor and I don't know the name of the Windows
font you need to install, I'm just aware that there's a Windows font
that replaced the J with a :).

HTML formatted emails are obsolete. You should use plain text and don't
care about idiots formatting mails with fonts they have installed on
their machines, without taking care that others don't use the same
fonts as they do.

I chose the screen size, the window size, the background and font
colour and the font myself, so that it fit's to my needs. HTML
formatted mails try to break this and in addition they cause much more

Nobody should send HTML formatted emails.

Yes, I agree with you but in my company everyone is using Outlook and sending emails in HTML format (well, 
almost everyone.. :) ).
And yes, it is a font issue, Outlook is using a special font face WindDings but will installing that font fix 
the problem? And can one run a script
or something to perhaps replace that special character with something else before showing the email?
