Postie allows you to create posts via email, including many advanced features not found in WordPress's default Post by Email feature.
Below is all the of the version information. As far as I can tell there once was a guy named John Blade. He took some of the original wp-mail.php code and started hacking away on it. He actually got pretty far. About the time I discovered WordPress and his little hack - called WP-Mail at the time - he went on a vacation or something. There were some problems with the script, and it was missing some features I wanted. I hacked away at it and got it into a place where it did what I wanted. I started posting about it since I figured other people might want the features.
John didn't release any more versions at least up til July 2005. So I started accepting submissions and feature requests from people to help make the code better. In June/July 2005 I discovered a little plugin by Chris J Davis (http://www.chrisjdavis.org/cjd-notepad/) called notepad. I added a small feature to it (basically a bookmarklet). In the process I started looking at his code and realized how much you could do with the plugin system available in Word Press.
So I decided to make an official fork. I put up an article on my blog asking for new names. I picked Postie. I then modified the code to be a proper plugin. And the rest is history :)
