I remember a talk by Terry Chay in which he showed that adding a smiley to the subject (don't remember the project) dramatically increased the response.

Little details can make such a big difference.

This is surprising to me. I would expect that I would more easily mis-categorize such an email as spam (than the one without a smiley).
