#17312: Emoji defacing email address
 Reporter:  danyill  |      Owner:  EionRobb
     Type:  defect   |     Status:  new
Milestone:           |  Component:  unclassified
  Version:  2.12.0   |   Keywords:
 Emoji seem to be translated across the whole of a message include the
 email header and protocol.

 When using sipe for instance this can mean a header like:

 sip:<email address>

 I have a contact whose email address begins with a d and the :d gets
 undesirably turned into an emoji. See attached.
