    Hear, hear!

    This is such a very basic functionality, I am almost gobsmacked that it has yet to be implemented in ProtonMail. I am curious to understand why that decision was made?

    EMOTICONS!?!? WE DON"T NEED NO STINKIN' EMOTICONS!!! (Paraphrase - Treasure of the Sierra Madre 1948)

    And I am SO completely kidding!

    You are spot-on in fact. It is nearly 2018. Emoticons have been in use in emails since nearly the beginning. Now we have graphic emoticons, or more accurately, emoji, that have been standardized and incorporated into the Unicode consortium's Unicode Standard beginning with version 6 which included some 80 emoji and increased with each subsequent update of the standard to present with version 10 which now features more than 200 emoji!

    I cannot speak to what, if any, risk the sender or receiver of an email containing an emoji might face, but I intuit that it is negligible, else their use would have fallen out of favor long ago.

    So YES, DEFINITELY! Emoji ought to be made available to ProtonMail customers AS AN OPTION, just as plain text and HTML enhanced text are offered as options now.

    And with that segue, let's briefly discuss the HTML text editor currently in use for customers that wish to use it.

    I have just one thing to say: TinyMCE. Predominantly Open Source, very stable and almost an industry standard which some proprietary WYSIWYG text editor are jumping through hoops to compete with.

    I am certain there is some rationale as to why TinyMCE was not implemented as the WYSIWYG text editor for ProtonMail from the beginning, but while some would find that interesting, it is really neither here nor there when discussing improving ProtonMail's text editing capabilities.
