Post Via Email...ERROR (5 posts)

    Sending a post to a pop3 account.

    I have tried this with multiple pop accounts. No go, I always get the same error on the wp-mail.php page. I've even set a cron job to that file on my server (Yes, you can set Cron jobs on GoDaddy.)

    Here's the error:

    POP3 connect: Error [0] [Success]

    Another question, nowhere have I really found whether I should place an http://, https:// or something else in front of the pop3 server address in the admin settings for WordPress.

    Ideas?

    You definitely aren't the only one having this issue - I've been trying to find a solution for DAYS and haven't found one yet.

    Try different hosting account. I could fetch the mail on wp-mail.php, but error in Cron jobs.

    I believe the error (assuming you are using php path/to/wp-mail) is that since it accesses locally, wp-mail doesn't understand the route back to the DB, and dies.

    I've heard of better success with wget, where it still errors out, but runs the mail check on its own.

    If you are able, trigger "send email upon completion of cron job" via your hosting admin panel. This should send back a more detailed description of whats going wrong, which you can then post here.
