    I might re-install Leopard in the near future and would not like to lose all my custom smileys on Microsoft Messenger.

    Is there a way to back them up with Time Machine or anything else?

    Your Messenger:Mac custom emoticons are stored in Documents/Microsoft User Data/Microsoft Messenger Data. If you have Time Machine set up to backup your Documents folder, and if you're not excluding the Microsoft User Data folder, you should have everything you need.

    Thanks, Nadyne. Can I as well just copy the Custom Emoticons folder that I have in my Microsoft Messenger folder and then put that emoticons folder into the newly installed Microsoft Messenger folder?

    Yup, that's it. Make sure you get the whole directory.
