Blog Via Email Not Working (8 posts)

    The blog via Email feature in my copy of WP does not work. Now, this sis more likely due to my lack of experties than anything. I've set the mail server, log in name, pass, etc. I've set a chron job to take care of it, which it does. But no matter what I do, it tells me I have a wrong log in or password, and this is using more than one account to test it, mind you. The Email I'm sending looks like this:
    To: email@domain.com
    Subject: blog:test
    login:password
    Testing the blog via Email function in WP.

    I'm sending from Outlook Express, also. Can anyone help?
    Thanks!

    I think I read in a thread somewhere that there needs to be a : delimiter after password too. Searching the forum for most posts on email posting problems would be a good idea.

    No, that didn't work. I even tried using Robert's modified version, still no go. What I'm getting when I check wp-mail.php is a copy of what I sent, with the password coming up along with login. They're displayed perfectly, but the error is that the login and pass are still wrong, when they aren't. I've got the mail server set as mail.domain.com, user as user@domain.com, etc. In this domain, logins must include username and domain so it's you@domain.com when you log in. Could this be causing an issue?

    I've had problems with this too. I had a friend take a look at it and he couldn't figure it out either. Apparently the script reads the password just fine, but parses it wrong. So unless you manually input a password (big no-no), I still don't know how to fix it. (this is regarding the original wp-mail.php)

    Are you using HTML email? (Outlook express does weird stuff with email)
    Check to make sure your email is being sent as plain text.

    I tried sending from the webmail interface instead. Nice suggestion, but still no go. In fact, with that one, the login/pass don't show up at all. I'm starting to think something's busted in the wp-mail.php script itself...

    I'm having the same problem. Copy of email shows up correctly but says login incorrect.

    It's because there is a space at the end of the password when it converted from the email. I have just posted a fix in the Beta Discussion Forum.
