Good for her!  Most people think we put the icon on the button just to make
it easy to find, and maybe provoke a smile.  She's the first one to figure
out it's actually staring at her, and really doesn't like her <wink>.

Many, but that's a builtin function of Outlook, so you don't need us for
this.  Type "change button image" at the Office Assistant when in Outlook,
and it will lead you to the relevant docs.  You can remove the icon
entirely, replace it with the happy face, replace it with a number of other
silly icons Outlook provides, or even edit the icon pixel by pixel, all
within Outlook.

The last time I tried this, the next time I started Outlook a box popped up
asking whether I accepted Microsoft's End User License Agreement for
Outlook.  Say "yes" <wink>.
