GMX, http://www.gmx.com, the free email service for more than 11 million active users, today launched a remarkable new feature for expressing emotion within personal emails.
Within a few clicks, GMX LiveEmoticons leverages the user's webcam to capture and insert a headshot into their email, accompanied by a choice of frame. The feature tackles the age-old problem of accurately reflecting your emotion within written communication. While GMX will continue to feature traditional emotion symbols, such as the popular smiley face symbol, GMX LiveEmoticon facilitates a far more expressive and personalized connection via email.
GMX LiveEmoticons is a fresh new way to enhance everyday personal email and communicate one's emotion or attitude at the time of sending an email. The easy-to-use tool is integrated neatly on the GMX toolbar and is compatible with all popular web cams.

After selecting their desired LiveEmoticon, the image is attached to their email within the relevant themed frame. This latest aspect of GMX's free email service is ideal for those who rely on email to stay connected with friends and loved ones.
The wide range of GMX Emoticons for use includes - Bored, Laughing out loud, Thinking of You, Swamped, Whatever, and XOXO. The feature comprises a uniquely efficient and memorable way to make written communication more dynamic and emotive.
