I have installed recently the MS Outlook 2007 on Windows 7, but I noticed that when I type  
:)   I don't get the smiley face any more.

Secondly, if I type  23rd   it does not change the format of the date, I mean It does not change the letters  "rd"  to small on top of the number  (I hope this is clear)..

What should I do to get these back ?

Thank You ..

You have probably accidentally adjusted the message format to something other then HTML.

Here is an article of how to adjust this...

Here is how to adjust it for all messages...

Change the message format for all messages
You can configure Outlook so that all new e-mail messages use the message format of your choice.

On the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the Mail Format tab.
In the Compose in this message format list, click the format that you want.

Actually, it is already set to HTML format.

However, this was not the cause, I just found the options that I should turn on;
Tools --> Options --> Mail Format tab --> Editor Options --> Proofing --> AutoCorrect Options -->

1) to get the smiles back or as a replacement to what you type do the follwoing"
- Go to AutoCorrect  tab --> Check "Replace text as you type"

2) Replace the (1st) (2nd) with superscript do the following;
- Go to  AutoFormat  tab --> Check "Ordinals (1st) with superscript"
