Postie
can't get Postie plugin to function (3 posts)

    The only thing my clients want is to be able to update the website in the future by themselves by uploading new documents. If there is an alternative to postie, I'd appreciate knowing--I can't get this to work.

    My host is Hostgator, and I'm using IMAP/SSL.

    My temp URL is: http://198.57.247.154/~satman/

    Postie settings seem to be correct, but it finds no emails. I've uploaded screenshots of my settings.

    Thanks in advance!

    I assume you've verified that there are in fact emails waiting in the inbox. Have you tried POP3-SSL?

    Wayne--thank you for answering. I have switched from postie to using the Jetpack version of Email Posts (configurable under the WP Users tab), and it is working fine.

    I'm still curious as to why the emails to postie didn't work (and you're right, it doesn't seem to be postie's problem). I tried all the different settings.

    I set up the email I"m using in postie in my Mac Mail program, and sent an email to the address I was using on postie to check the settings. I watched the email be received by the Mac Mail program, but it disappeared before it was ever posted in the Inbox.

    Could not find it!

    So weird...
