[resolved] Multiple email addresses, each assigned to one category? (3 posts)

    Hi, I love your plugin but wanted to make a feature request, which could set this plugin apart from POSTIE (big time!).

    In multi-author blogs, we all know there are many users that have very limited technical skills. Therefore, requiring them to use shortcode to advise where they want to post things might be overkill.

    Wouldn't it be simpler to create multiple email addresses and assign each of those one category?

    For example:

    blog@mysite.com => post to blog category
    greatproducts@mysite.com => post to products category
    ...

    and so on.. I think this could increase usability and since most hosting accounts come with unlimited email addressses these days, this could be a nice feature. And it's a lot easier to share a list of email addresses with authors than to explain them shortcodes.

    Anyway just a thought, all the best of success to your plugin!

    Thanks, that's a pretty interesting thought. I'm adding it to the list for a future version.

    Hi Kat, happy you like it. Let me know if you want me to do some testing for you, whenever you have a chance to crunch this... I'd be happy to chip in some cash for the development if that can escalate the priority on the list of future requests ;-)
