    Hack Email Format
    The following enhancements may be made to your wp-mail.php so your email will be translated into metadata for your post:

    If [n] is present anywhere in the subject line of your email, the email will be filed under the category numbered n. Otherwise, it will be posted under whichever category is selected for "Usual Category" in Step 1. Example: [1] This is a Test! would be posted as "This is a Test!", filed under General.

    i created a subject line like this
    [6]Some_Subject_line_text
    6->being some catgory name

    But the email is not being parsed correctly into that particular category and instead,
    the posts go into the default category with the numbers prefixed in the post titles

    what am i doing wrong here?

    I'm having the same problem and simply cannot find a solution anywhere.

    Does anyone have an easy answer for this?
