    Thanks. Although the link didn't work for me, I went to the latest CVS by other means and took the extra bit in wp-mail.php that inserts the appropriate row into the post2cat table, which I assumed was the problem, and put it into my own wp-mail.php. It seems to have done the trick anyhow. We'll see how it performs with extensive testing!

    I also went to the latest CVS by other means and took the extra bit in wp-mail.php that inserts the appropriate row into the post2cat table (the chunk down at the bottom if anyone is using a file comparitor (like WinMerge) of the old wp-mail with the new CVS wp-mail.
    Worked like a charm.

    I made a thread for this by itself, but got no responses. So I'm hoping I can get an answer here:
    The instructions for posting by email aren't clear to me. I've set up a certain address for posting from and I set that up in the WP config, the question is what email address do I send to? I sent an email post to [that same address], and then ran the wp-mail.php. I saw the content of the email there, however there is no new post on my blog. What did I do wrong?
    Also, why do the instructions say HTML email is not supported? I'd like to use this system for a friend who formats a newsletter in Outlook (HTML)... It would be much easier to send that directly than have to log in and re-format the newsletter in the WP interface.
