    I followed the post-by-email directions in the codex: I set up a new email address (secretaddress@mydomain.com), I entered the incoming mailserver (mail.mydomain.com), port 110, "secretaddress" and password in the "writing" section in my wordpress account.

    I also added an editor account for my blog. I can send emails from the editor email address to secretaddress@mydomain.com, and the emails are received. But, when I went to check http://mydomain.com/installdir/wp-mail.com, all i got is an "oops, this is embarrasing, we can't find the page you're looking for" error message.

    So after reading through the forum, I tried http://mydomain.com/wp-mail.com (without the installdir). Now I get either

    POP3 connect: Error [110] [Connection timed out]

    or the "slow down cowboy" error message.

    I have tried changing my incoming server to ssl://mail.mydomain.com but it doesn't change anything.

    Any idea what I might be doing wrong?

    I'm using version 3.4.2.
