FOAF in Thunderbird

Ian Davis saw my post on FOAF and Thunderbird, and found out how to add a FOAF URI to Thunderbird as a mail header. Thanks Ian!

Seth Ladd had an interesting idea: adding an x-foaf header to outgoing emails. I wondered if this was possible in Thunderbird and after a bit of digging I found that you can do it by adding the following to prefs.js in your Thunderbird profile directory

I changed the code for the prefs file just a bit. I used:

user_pref("mail.identity.id1.headers", "foaf");
user_pref("mail.identity.id1.header.foaf", "X-FOAF-URI:");

I changed X-FOAF-Uri to X-FOAF-URI, and the values of the idXXX.headers pref must match the idXXX.header.YYYYY.

Now I'm sending FOAF around the world!
