Email Posting to WordPress via Outlook/Word (7 posts)

    I have just installed WordPress and love the idea. The best thing I can imagine is creating content via the rich-text editor of an email client.

    I have the posting via email already running, but when I send an email it gets very very garbled on the posting process.

    I imagine others have seen this... can someone help?!

    An example of the post looks like this:

    This is a multipart message in MIME format.

    –Boundary_(ID_ZiLvw5jqtJg+Ey/G75Z8AA)
    Content-type: multipart/alternative;
    boundary=”Boundary_(ID_m7TLeP5w1KX0F96T91VXlA)”

    –Boundary_(ID_m7TLeP5w1KX0F96T91VXlA)
    Content-type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii
    Content-transfer-encoding: 7BIT

    Yet another test!!!

    Ther we go

    –Boundary_(ID_m7TLeP5w1KX0F96T91VXlA)
    Content-type: text/html; ch

    Well, if you're using Word at any point in the compose process, you probably won't ever be able to get rid of extranea such as the "garbling". Try just for a test compositing in notepad which doesn't throw so much formatting junk into the text.

    interesting. I have written an email stripper that works fine with word. It just notices that it's a multipart mime message and uses only one part as the body. It also knows how to detach inline images and replace the "src" tags in the message.

    I am assuming, from your reply, that this is not something that is currently coded for in any way? Just so I don't keep digging in there.

    "I am assuming, from your reply, that this is not something that is currently coded for in any way? Just so I don't keep digging in there."

    Not sure what you mean there. Do you mean you're wondering if the developers coded wp to recognize the stripper setup? Or the junk from Word? Or am I missing the point entirely (not an unlikely supposition....)?

    I'm sorry, I mean that they didn't code for word emails, or that there isn't a plug-in for it.

    Ah. Thanks. Sorry I'm sometimes a bit dim! Well, far as I know, they didn't code for word emails, no. And I'm not aware of a plugin for same, but then I don't use word or post by email.

    You might want to dig through the plugins here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Plugins; and here: http://www.wp-plugins.net/

    Might come up with something....
