MSN-Notifier

Description

This is a wordpress plugin, which help those who don’t want to give up MSNSpace. This plugin hooks onto the publish action of a post, so that whenever you publish a post in your wordpress, a notification containing the title, a teaser of the post (therefore first 50 characters or up to the “more” tag) and a bloglink is sent to your MSNspace automatically.

You need to enable email-publishing from your MSNSpace. Only posts are synchronized, not pages. You can choose not to notify msnspace for a specific post easily by unchecking an option on post editing page.

Installation

unzip and put msnnotifier.php into your plugin page (usually /wordpress/wp-content/plugins). Setup the plugin in the option page.

Now the plugin can use three method to synchronize with your MSNSpace: PHP mail() function, linux sendmail, and SMTP, basically what’s supported by wp-includes/class-phpmailer.php. The mail and sendmail methods are recommended, which requires little setup. You just need to provide your MSNSpace email publishing address, your domain name in the plugin option page.

REMINDER: Add your msnnotifier@yourdomainn to MSNSpace’s email publishing from address.

The SMTP method is still included but it no longer works for Gmail which requires a SSL connection not supported by wordpress’s phpmailer class. Install a newer version of phpmailer may solve the problem and you will have change the source yourself. SMTP Authencation is always used for SMTP method.
