I suggest adding the ability to disable "Smiley autocorrect". This feature already exists in Outlook for Windows and Outlook online. My opinion (and others share it) is that colorful emojis or emoticon smiley faces are unprofessional and distracting. The ability for me to choose whether the autocorrect will switch the colon parenthesis ":)" smiley to a symbol or image smiley gives me the ability to decide what I believe is professional or not, rather than relying on Outlook to decide for me.

Disable the autocorrect for sure and, likely, never opt users into such "features." It's HIGHLY disorienting for your best customers (been with you for decades) to have their worlds continually change, with nothing to say about it, and no clear and simple way to opt out on first occurrence.
Please allow Mac users to disable emoji autocorrect too. Thanks.
Yes. This is typical Microsoft nonsense. I want what Itype to show up on the page. I am not a teenager.
