Update emoji offerings for emails

Trying to boost open rates by implementing an emoji in the email subject line, but there are only a limited number of unicode symbols available as working emojis. Would be great if this could be updated to the most current universe of emoji offerings. Thanks!

    Thanks for the info.Here is the link I was thinking of: https://community.blackbaud.com/forums/viewtopic/1/443?post_id=443#p443.

    Also. here are some other good pages to read on the subject taken from the comments:

    And agreed Mike, keeping this idea open so we bake it in but in the meantime at least there is a work-around.  Looks like you were on that community thread too!

    I think it'd be nice if the email application had an emoji chooser widget, instead of having to manually convert the value.

    Thanks, Ken. Something we'd like to test out. In my specific case, I can include basic envelope emoji (✉) but not something newer (📬 open mailbox with raised flag (U+1F4EC).

    I think there were some posts in our Community about this but not sure if they used the ones you currently use or an expanded list. I'll post a link if I can find it again. I think it was sometime in 2014.  Is this something you've seen success with or is it something you'd like to test out and see the results?

    Also, noting this as requirement for next gen.

    Thanks,

    Ken
