    I’m setting up a blogging site for a group of environmental activists. They all now setup in wordpress as users and assigned the role of author. They are all learned in environmental science and wise in environmental politics, but hardly at all tech savvy. The are, however, masters of their email clients which makes the jetpack post by email option appears to be ideal. My impression is that I distribute the post by address to all those authorized by the group to post and then they can just email their blog entries and have them appear on the blogging site (or is that assumption incorrect?) My concern i what happens should someone outside the group such as a spammer gets the address. What prevents them from posting to the blog?

    Absolutely nothing, so you’ll need to make sure that only trusted folks have that email address. You can always re-generate the email address though if anything happens.

    Overall, I recommend see if they’re more comfortable using WordPress’s editor first. It’s far more feature-rich, and most folks find it easier. Our Post By Email feature is more intended for folks to still publish from places with slow or limited connections (where loading a site is problematic, but sending an email is trivial).

    This site has some great tutorials for WordPress’s new editor: https://gogutenberg.com/
