I got a geekmail earlier today and noticed something weird. The message that I got in geekmail was different than the same message when it was emailed to me. Notably, half the message was missing.

It appears that the error occurs because the geekmail system doesn't accept unicode emoji characters. At least it didn't accept the "grinning face" emoji character. That character and everything the followed it are missing from the geekmail message.

(Note: The forum also eats the character as well. It'll show up on the preview screen but once you submit the message, anything after that character is lost.)
