Mail: Generator for mail subject line with Emoji, Pictographs and Symbols


to show emoji,Pictographs or symbols in email subject line this line must be UTF8 encoded.

For example a heart. A heart has the Unicode Heart Unicode UTF8(Hex) Code 0xE2 0x99 0xA5.

The skeleton for a UTF8 subject line is

=?utf-8?Q? Your Subject Content ?=

So insert your subject between the last two questionmarks. At the postition of the emoji insert the UTF8 hex code, replace “0x” with “=” and remove space between the 3 Hex parts:

=?utf-8?Q?With love =E2=99=A5?=

I have written a simple Subject line generator. Insert the HTML Code 💖 or Unicode Code Position U+1F496 into the “Emoji HTML-or Unicode” Field:

Emoji HTML-or Unicode:
Subject Text:
UTF8 Character:
UTF8 Hex Code:
UTF8 Subject Code:

  1. Hi Michael
    Your post is very useful. Lot of Thanks
    But when using a subject with an acute accent or other type of accent (very common in french for example), the encoded subject doesn’t work .
    Here is an example :

    With the subject = Electricité (Electricity in french)
    and the emoji 🏁 (a flag)

    Your result is =?utf-8?Q? Electricité =F0=9F=8F=81 ?=
    which give a n email subject = =?utf-8?Q? Electricité =F0=9F=8F=81 ?=

    If I replace the acute by an e then
    the subject = Electricite
    and the emoji 🏁 (a flag)

    Your result is =?utf-8?Q? Electricite =F0=9F=8F=81 ?=
    This time the subject of the email shows a flag.

    Is there a way to use accented characters in the subject and continue to have the ability to add an emoji ?

    Thanks for your help.

  2. How can su represent é á í ó ú ñ and uppercase those characters ÁÉÍÓÚÑ in this tool?

    =?utf-8?Q? Membresías =F0=9F=92=96 ?=
