    A couple of my clients are weary of using Quality Control full-time as they would like the ability to contact me from their mobile phones. Although I wish to use this system full-time, I wish for them to have the ability to post via email, but I do not know how to accomplish this with the way that quality control currently works. Any help on this topic? Thanks so much!

    WordPress supports posts via email already: http://codex.wordpress.org/Post_to_your_blog_using_email However I don't think it works with custom post types. Looking in wp-mail.php I don't see a way to filter the post type.

    Understood. Not being a wise guy on this AT ALL, just wanting to clarify. So although WordPress supports posts via email, which I knew, we are struck on this possiblity when it comes to posting tickets via email for Quality Control. Right?

    I may look to a friend to see if I can create a plugin specifically for this for this theme.

    The problem is the theme uses a custom post type for tickets, as opposed to the default "posts" post type. When someone posts via email, there is no way the theme can specify to use the "ticket" post type. (That I know of).

    I'm trying to do the same thing (post via email to a custom post type) for a WooThemes SupportPress theme and I can't figure out how to get this to work. Did you manage to get this resolved? Any ideas or tips would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.
