Hi, I've been trying to get blogging by email to work with no success.
I tried using the built in function in 2.2.3. That only did titles, not posts.
So I tried moving to Postie. That wouldn't update automatically, only manually. I got my host (dreamhost) to check and amend the cron job. They believe it is correct:
/dh/cgi-system/php5.cgi /home/server/user/blog address/wp-content/plugins/postie/get_mail.php >/dev/null 2>&1
But no dice. I have got postie to test its install and it reports that everything is fine.
I have now upgraded to 2.5 in the hope that the built in function works, but it doesn't. I have tried turning Postie on and off, but it doesn't help.
How on earth does anyone get blogging by email to work? It works out of the box on blogger - why not with wordpress?
All suggestions gratefully accepted. Bear in mind I am not technical. I just want to blog via email - principally from my phone.
