Why should telepathy be capable of doing those things? How could it work? How would the feeling of an emotion be coded in a way that could be universally understood? Only those who know the code should understand the message. Or you could just say telepathy is magic and it allows anything.

Sure it would...it could convey the emotion, intensity, etc. beyond mere words, as well as images, sounds, smells, etc. in the person's mind along with the message...
Much more efficient, and no misinterpretation.
