Anyone using Wordpress post via email feature?

apps

#1

I am hosting my site here on Dreamhost and want to post to my wordpress blog via email… I setup an email address specifically for this and configured wordpress. I send an email… and no post occurs. Ideas?

See http://codex.wordpress.org/Blog_by_Email

Beware: the wp-mail.php script as-is deletes the messages from the mail server when run.

:cool: Perl / MySQL / HTML+CSS

Thanks for the link.

For those of us that might have trouble following it, it basically says that you either need to go to the following page after you send an email or tell your server to check for you on a schedule (I just set up a quick cron job that calls a script that uses “wget” to retrieve that page.)

http://yoursite.com/(wordpress-install)/wp-mail.php

The option of a plugin into wordpress does not appear to be a real option as it appears to only be for older versions (1.5 or so) of Wordpress.

(I hate it when referenced links disappear - I also hate creating duplicated content on the net.)

Any chance you can tell me how to do this?
