Your users are sending you emails with certain emojis or unusual characters embedded in them. 

JIRA running on MySQL does not yet support these, it can't safely write them to the database, so it fails.

You either need to get them to stop sending emails like that, move to PostGresql or Oracle, or accept it until a fixed version arrives (Could be a long time)

Effectively it happens with emojis. Thank you very much for the reply.

The one I first encountered was highly appropriate - 💩
