Stay On Top
Stay On Top should be checked at all times. This keeps Smileycons on top of all other windows so you can always see the images in Smileycons. It makes it easy to choose the image or animation you want to insert in your email message, Web forum post, or MSN Messenger chat window.

Local Mode - If you configure Smileycons with the email program or service you are using as explained above, you will not need to adjust this setting.
When this is checked images and animations are accessed directly from your hard drive. If you uncheck "Local Mode" the images are accessed directly from our Web server. Generally, it's best to leave Local Mode unchecked since this works with the most email programs, web forums and message boards, Web mail applications like Yahoo, Google and Hotmail. If you configure Smileycons for the program in which you're using it, you don't have to worry about "Local Mode". The configuration tool will reset this for you based on your configuration.
