    Just another quick question... I just wondered if there is a font or
    symbol that is used to signify an Email address? Is there something
    that is used more than anything else? I'm not so sure there is a
    symbol that is universally recognised as a symbol for email. I was
    thinking that the Outlook logo that often pops up in the taskbar when
    you get new email would be a good symbol to use. The little envelope
    with the twirling arrows around it.

    If there's anything you've always used, or prefer I'd love to hear
    what it is.

    Um, ? That signifies it pretty good right
    there. The only other thing it could possibly be is a messageID, but
    that's unlikely as most message ids are like [email protected], not

    Bear in mind that these symbols are only useful if the email recipient also
    has the font installed.

    It was just something I was wanting to print.

  5. Webdings is available on all computers with IE installed, which is pretty
    much all Windows boxes.
