Loading Plugin caused Spam(T.A.F exploit)
By , for WP 3.9.1

Within a very short time of loading the Postie plugin - off the WordPress.org plugin site I was contacted by the web host to say that they had detected a lot of emails sent from the site (It was a clean new WP site). They discovered the Postie plugin had sent approximately 70K messages. (darn - I hate to have contributed to that).
I had found the plugin via some reviews (thought they were safe ones).
I cannot recommend using this plugin and I suggest anyone using it should be cautious and check it has not been compromised.

Exactly what I wanted
By , for WP 3.8.2

This is exactly what I wanted.
Choosing post types, categories, and tags are great.
It would be even better if we could choose nothing for the default category, as there are cases when you want to categorize the post under custom taxonomies (instead of categories)... but that is a small problem. Everything else is just perfect for me.
Thanks for the great plugin!

perfect plugin
By , for WP 3.8

I was looking for a plugin that takes an e-Mail, writes a post and sets the first image as featured image for that new Post.
with POSTIE it worked perfectly in 2 minutes.

Very good work, thank you!

Gmail success follows 123-reg frustration
By ,

Great plugin for those of us who don't live on the internet. Struggled for months without success, trying to get it to work with our domain hosted on 123-reg. Eventually, set up a dedicated gmail account and it worked straight-away.

One problem possibly related to a clash with s2member but this was resolved when I (tentatively) updated to WP3.8 - seems to work fine.

Thanks. I'll be donating.

An easy 4 stars
By , for WP 3.6.1

Works well and deserves 5 stars but for the time check being broken. In the config settings postie allows adding a time differential to account for time zones but it doesn't appear to work. Author says it's fixed in the next release.
I wasn't able to configure postie to work with Gmail, it just didn't want to happen, but was able to easily configure to my hosting account email (totalchoicehosting.com) which proved to be a good thing. The site I'm building serves two distinct groups each of whom needs a distinct email address to post - I set up all the needed addresses for posting and then forward them all to a central address that postie sees.
Wasn't able to find anything better than postie!

Bad Experience with Scheduled Posts and SNAP
By , for WP 3.5.1

This plugin is very flexible, has good security measures but doesn't force them on you, and gives a lot of needed control over the attached images and videos you can post. Unfortunately, all forms of scheduling through the code produce unpredictable results. It also causes Next Scripts: Social Medial Auto-Posting to not work automatically for posts create by email.
