I decided to try a few symbols and see just how well email clients did in correctly showing them. The webmail clients for Gmail, Yahoo and Hotmail all had good support. Hotmail Yahoo Gmail Outlook 2003 to 2010 support Unicode symbols, this is how the Outlook 2010 inbox looks: iPhone and iPad had no problems either, however the standard Android 2.2 email client whilst showing the heart symbol (♥) did not show the snowman (☃) or smilie (☺).
