This is a very promising extension, and quite useful. However, a couple of caveats:
1) There should be an option to make Unicode emojis standard. Quite a few mail programs dislike non-Unicode emojis.
2) The emoticon button currently in the formatting/typing command bar will only allow me to add one emoji. After that it stops working. In fact, the button is so useless that I would like an option to get rid of it.
If you could fix the two items above, this add-on would certainly merit five stars.
In the meantime, thank you for your hard work so far!
UPDATE: I have changed my rating to five stars after the dev's reply (incidentally, thank you for answering so promptly). The reasons are:
1) If it's on the near-future agenda, that's good enough for me.
2) After researching this a bit, I find that I mistook—what I now discover to be—TB's built-in (and less-than-useless) emoticon button on the formatting bar for one inserted by this extension. Sorry for the confusion. Mind you, I would still like to get rid of it ;-) Apologies again.
Thanks for your feedback. The first item is on the agenda. The second item I don't understand, can you provide more detail, ideally by opening an issue at GitHub? Thanks
