    Hi, I get also the error, that I've got an unauthorized Post Attempt, even if I allow posting from any adress, Insert my adresses in the "Authorized Adresses" field and check every group is authorized.
    I'm using WP 3.21

    Same problem here - 2 hours stuffing around on a very clean and stable 3.2.1. installation, no problems from any other plugin.

    Will the client pay? Don't think so.

    Sorry about the p.s. - but deactivating and reactivating worked - the second time.

    Not:
    - A caching problem
    - Conflict with other plugins
    - Mail server problem.

    @zondar: How did you get it working? only deactivating and reactivating? I did this a few times, but nothing helped.
    Does anybody have an idea? I need this plugin to make every post "Privat".
    Is there another plugin, which will do this?

    @cyberdrude,

    Not sure if this is what you are trying to do, but here goes:

    Postie is a fairly complex piece of work, so all kudos to the developer to get it running so well.

    1. You can set it up so that all posts arrive as 'Draft'.
    That way they won't appear on your blog until you select 'Publish'. You'll have to change the status to 'Private' in the posts screen.

    2. You really need a separate email address that nobody else will know about, or send to. Otherwise, forget it.
    NB: 'Alias' email addresses don't seem to work.

    First, check the 'test' function until it says your settings are OK.
    Then send yourself test emails until the email content
    shows up when you manually check for email input.

    As with most WP plugins, the developer pitches the instructions to techie people.

    After a lot of stuffing around with settings, it finally works well.

    It's a huge advantage to just fire off a post idea in a few lines then complete the post later in WP.
