Emojis in subject – sometimes works, sometimes not.

Hi,

I am having trouble using emojicons (Q-encoded) in my subject lines. 

When I use this subject line "Schauen Sie sich unser Produktvideo an " it works. No matter emoji I use.  The code in the back-end is still "Schauen Sie sich unser Produktvideo an =?utf-8?Q?=F0=9F=91=8B?=" . 

If I use this subject "Schön, Sie kennenzulernen, Eric Eggebrecht =?utf-8?Q?=F0=9F=8E=A5?=" it doesn't work. No matter what Emoji-code I use. 

In the first case it shows the emoji, in the 2nd it doesn't. I tried it several email assistants – doesn't matter. It's always the same. 

Has anybody an idea why this may happen?

Many thanks

Eric

Hi Sanford,

 

I have Q-encoded a heart emoji, (U+2764) using your tool on your blog, added it as a token (text token) to the program to insert it into a sentence, but in live sample testing it reads as a string of text: Supersize your =?UTF-8?Q?=E2=9D=A4=EF=B8=8F?= love =?UTF-8?Q?=E2=9D=A4=EF=B8=8F?= this Valentine’s Day

 

in Outlook and Gmail.

 

What am I doing wrong/what should I do differently?

 

Thanks!
