Enrich Wikimedia email with Schema.org metadata
Open, LowestPublic

Description

GMail recognizes certain metadata fields in the HTML source of an email and adds extra features to its interface in response. Most fields support ecommerce use cases (e.g. flight ticket, room reservation), but there are some that might make sense for emails sent by Wikimedia:

  • Go-To Actions, basically link buttons that are visible even in the closed state of the email - could be useful for talk page messages and similar Echo notifications
  • One Click Actions, basically buttons that are visible even in the closed state of the email and can be clicked one time to fire off an API request. Could be used for email address confirmation and probably many other things.

There is a registration process involved.

Do any other email providers support this metadata?

I don't know, and it'd be hard to get a direct answer unless you know someone/do testing.

Do any other email providers support this metadata?

Probably not - I couldn't find anything by googling and I imagine there would be big announcements if Yahoo or Hotmail implemented this.

The markup did go through a standards track, though.

FWIW 20% of the non-empty email addresses in CentralAuth end with @gmail.com.
