Many emoji's are showing up as rectangles; I haven't touched any font
settings so what should I check?
It's emojis. It may require research to pin down.
You can start by saving the emails as files, then have
a look at the binary sequences and look them up on Google.
Make sure the header indicates 8 bit transmission and
not 7 bit transmission, as that may accidentally lop off
the top bit and screw them up. Transport and declarations
don't have to match in the computer world.
But the process starts with saving a message, examining
both header and body text. And feeding body text hex
values into Google, for a considered opinion on what
was supposed to happen.
One platform might be ahead of another platform, in
terms of what additional emoji codes or methods
have been added. That's where the considered opinion
part comes in. If a sequence you entered into Google,
only returns articles about "Apple Mac" or "Apple iPhone",
then you would suspect the ecosystems aren't matched.
The sender is just as likely to have butchered the
message, as your end is.
It's a lot like, in 2020, successfully getting
attachments through an email system unmolested.
