  5. (Optional) Do any of the following:

    • To change color, size, font type, or formatting (italic, bold, or underlined) for all or part of your message, highlight the selected text, click the Font icon, and then make any changes.

    • To add an emoticon, put the cursor where you want the emoticon to go, click the Emoticon icon, and then click the emoticon you want to add.

    • To mark a message as high-priority, click the High importance icon.

    • To show a web address as a working link, use the full address.
