Anyone use Amazon Simple Email Service?

I'm wondering if it's doable and how to do it. Right now I use gmail, but if I could use something more capable I'll use it.

Indeed it would. I use an extension called Amazon S3 that off loads attachments to Amazon to lessen server load and I paid nothing. But now I have expanded my S3 buckets to home backups using the program CloudBerry so now I pay around 30 cents or so a month. Come to think of it, I haven't been charged in a while now since I lessened the backup period to one of my desktops to once per week. I don't backup the whole computer as that's not needed. I backup key important data like my browser profile, pictures, videos, etc. Then I periodically clone the whole computer to an external SSD using AOMEI Backupper. I then store my clones in a fireproof safe rated for electronics. They only cost around $35.
Input of emoji is done "natively" on many platforms, by which I mean the input method is simply using the Unicode consortium-defined values that represent the different emoji, in pretty much the same way we all agree on using the Unicode values which represent "A", "B", "C", etc. i.e. The actual message, and the actual input, knows nothing of "an image"; and the emoji is simply just another character value like every other character in the message.
[img]link to an image they wanted to be placed among the text." Which is the way these kinds of things started out on the web, way back when. And is probably how it's still done now for all the wild "custom emoji images" systems out there, which fall outside of the Unicode-defined specification.)
Does your board have a URL? What if I pinged it? Would the DNS universe not have to know the IP address corresponding with your domain name?

No worries. I originally tried to answer the "where did those come from" question with just "it's phpBB doing that." But that answer seemed insufficient / to beg for some additional explanation of how/why that's the answer when "I'm not using smilies"...
Based on other posts, I'll assume what you're referring to is geolocation data. i.e. "Looking up the information about your IP address doesn't tell me exactly where you live or where your computer is at." That is correct. For most cases, the IP address can't resolve anyone down to their actual city or street. But nor did we expect that it could, because most geolocation data is simply based on public records.
