Hello,

I am currently using Webmail Pro 9.3.3.build2-build-a3 and have issues with Contacts containing an Emoji.

Basically any Emoji will show up as "????" in my contacts.
As I have received / created quite a lot contacts shared through e.g. WhatsApp etc; I end up with a lot of "????" in my contacts.

Calendar can deal with Emojis in Title / Description without a problem.

How to get Emojis working in Contacts, too?

Can you please clarify how exactly do you get those contacts shared - do you import them as .CSV of .VCF file, or obtain them via DAV sync?

If you create such a contact in WebMail Pro directly, do emojis show correctly there? Thanks.

Hi Igor,

contacts are just shared in e.g. WhatsApp and then added as a new contact in iOS (so basically similar to just creating a new contact in iOS).

Either way, when a newly added / created contact in iOS contains an Emoji, then this Emoji will show up as "????".

Same goes for creating a new contact in WebMail Pro directly - as soon as you save a contact containing an emoji, it will show the Emoji as "????".

I made a screen-recording here (gif-file, click on thumbnail to play):

Got it, thank you. I'll check this with the developers and will get back to you.

Not yet. Maybe later this summer.

Just a follow up to see if this is on the roadmap.
Would be good to have proper emoji support in contacts & calendar
