Posted:how can you add emoticons without them being resized into tiny pics?

I renamed the .gif files to .dat and stuck them here :

c:\documents and settings\user\application data\microsoft\msn messenger\account number\custom emoticons

but they dont show up on emoticon list. any ideas? have i done something wrong?


Always use "so's your face" and "only on Tuesdays" in as many conversations possible
