Bug ID: 405455
Summary: Replace smileys with emojis
Platform: Debian unstable
Target Milestone: ---
Created attachment 118786
My try to match UTF-8 emojis to KMail smileys
In the composer window there is a "Add Smiley" button which only works when the
message is being composed as rich-text format. Since UTF-8 is continually
expanded with emojis and is supported by every self-respecting platform, my
suggestion is to replace those smileys with UTF-8 emojis which would make them
available for plaintext mails, too.
STEPS TO REPRODUCE
1. Compose a new e-mail
2. Disable rich-text format
3. Click the "Add smiley" button
The button is greyed out and therefore doesn't work.
The button unfolds a menu with a set of emoticons which are inserted as UTF-8
emojis when clicked. The recipient's client can display them without further
interpretation (unlike classic smileys).

In the attachment you'll find some UTF-8 equivalents to the smileys in the
Smiley menu, the ones I couldn't find are marked with X. The "tofus" are the
one which are too new in UTF-8 and can't be displayed even using the Noto Sans
font. Last but not least I added some suggestions which I think are used quite
often and therefore would fit well.
