    I had Allow Anyone To Post Via Email setting YES. My email server will filter the sender and only receive the email from staff member.

    But I don't want the post all display as "posted by Admin", how can I grab sender's address as author please?

    In order for the theme to show who posted they need to be a valid WP user.

    If you know who is sending emails, you just need to create a WP user for each email.

    Otherwise you will need to create a Postie AddOn that either creates a user on the fly, or puts the email address in a custom field so you can display it in your theme.

    Contact me at postie-help@devzing.com if you need assistance creating the AddOn.
