first of all close aMsn.
open `config.xml` (the 'old' box one), scroll down to line 700 (more or less)..
.. there you can find entries like this:
<emoticon> <file>$path_to_config.xml/smileys/f407c4956566632527373393357494e4a7664623f247e4c635a494d3.png</file> <text>$text</text> <name>$description</name> <category>$category_if_present</category> <image_name>emoticonCustom_std_$text</image_name> </emoticon>
... copy them all... .. open the fresh installation `config.xml` and paste everything after the (newline after the) last `</entry>` tag (you should find it around line 700 again)...
of course you have to copy the entire `$path_to_config.xml/smileys` directory/folder from the old box to the new one.. .. and update the `<file>` field of every `<emoticon>` entry in the 'new' config.xml if $path_to_config.xml differs between the two installations...
.. so... if done properly it should work...
windows users can find `config.xml` somewhere similar to `C:\Documents and Settings\$windows_username\amsn\$email_address\`; vista users should look over `C:\Users\$windows_username\amsn\$email_address\`..
