Zemanta‘s semantic technology has been around in Firefox for a while now via their add-on, which is just one of the tools in their set. Amongst other things it provides you with image, link, and article suggestions based on your content as you write blog posts or compose (Web)emails. This weeks sees releases that support new clients Outlook 2007 and Thunderbird, giving users of desktop mail an opportunity to use the service.

Read about the new releases.

Here I will give a quick tutorial on how to get going in Thunderbird. Versions 2 and 3 are supported. This can be incredibly fun when composting emails to friends and family, or have practical use for writing fact-finding emails.

Install

The install XPI is the same as the Firefox and Mobile, but if you want the Thunderbird listing URL, here it is:

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/addon/7571

HTML Compose

First you will have to turn HTML Compose on. In Account Settings, for each account you want to use it with, go to Composition & Addressing and check the ‘Compose messages in HTML format‘ box.

HTML Compose Setting
HTML Compose Setting

Send Options

Setting HTML Compose ensures you can write and see rich emails, and the next step is to ensure the recipient can also see it in it’s full glory. This means that you have to set them to receive HTML mails. The default I believe is for mixed text/html which is fine, and you will be warned if you have the wrong setting. But just to know, first go to the main Thunderbird Preferences/Options and select the Composition panel. At the bottom select the Send Options… button.

Composition Preferences

In Send Options, look for the Text Format dropdown. Choose any options except ‘Convert the message to plain text’.

Away We Go

That’s it. Now you can go ahead and compose a great email.

Zemanta Compose
Writing an email with Zemanta (click for full size)

The Zemanta ‘Content Recommendations‘ panel appears on the right side in the Compose window. This can be opened/closed via the format toolbar button. When you start writing your email, Zemanta when it has enough words will retrieve suggestions for you. Then you just need to click on the results to add/remove items from the email. It will keep checking back for changed content and refresh the recommendations.

    Not to disparage this add-on, but what’s a use case for this? I can’t imagine anyone using this in a personal e-mail, so really the only users are people sending out mass e-mail announcements, who’ll think to themselves, “This will really help me add some pizzazz to my messages.”. Only then, having downloaded it, they’ll feel compelled to use it for every announcement, apropos or not.

    Hi Peter,

    Andraz from Zemanta here.

    Thank you for pointing it out! We need to update our privacy policy to include all forms of email. Basically we are throwing away all the text of the email messages as soon as we send the response back.

    Other parts of the data we are retaining are used for improvement of the service, analytics and similar. We’re not holding on to any information about messages themselves – we don’t keep their content. Also to note – when using Zemanta for email (no matter which type of deployment) the data travels exclusively via HTTPS to Zemanta’s servers.

    Nonetheless, Peter, your point in general holds, moving to cloud-based processing of our data, there are a lot more potential dangerous scenarios. At Zemanta we are trying hard to do the right thing.

    Andraz Tori, CTO and cofounder at Zemanta

    My wife and i ended up being happy when Peter could carry out his inquiry with the precious recommendations he acquired while using the site. It’s not at all simplistic just to be giving away secrets people today have been selling. And we all remember we have the blog owner to thank for this. Those explanations you have made, the straightforward web site menu, the friendships you will aid to instill – it is many great, and it’s really letting our son in addition to our family reckon that that situation is cool, and that’s seriously serious. Thanks for all the pieces!
