    I have been failing for MONTHS to get posting by email working. I'm sure that my email account funnyname$1@mysite.com is working. I downloaded a free mozella POP3 client at
    http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/
    installed it and it can read my email. It says the settings are
    server type: POP Mail Server
    server name: mail.mysite.com port 110
    user name: funnyname$1@mysite.com
    Then it says Security Settings
    Connection Security: STARTLS
    Authentication method: Normal Password

    Likewise in the blog at
    http://mysite.com/blog/wp-admin/options-writing.php
    I have entered the following:
    Mail Server: mail.mysite.com port 110
    Login Name: funnyname$1@mysite.com
    Password: xxxxxxx
    Default mail category: uncategorized

    When I go to
    http://mysite.com/blog/wp-mail.php
    I get a Box that says
    NO DATA RECEIVED
    RELOAD LESS
    Unable to reload the web page because the server sent no data
    Error code: ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE

    How can I get more info? Can't I turn on an error log?
    Could the problem be this STARTLS security setting?

    Any help greatly appreciated!
