[resolved] Auto set post_status from Post By Email? (4 posts)

    I haven't found anything on this but I can't imagine I am the only one who wants this. I just want all posts generated from Post By Email to be automatically set to draft until someone manually makes them published.

    I know you can set the post status through shortcodes within the email but I just want it to happen universally for all emailed posts. There must be a function that can do this but I can't begin to figure that out.

    Thank you!

    Has anyone else encountered this? I know I can set a function to change the post_status on publish but is there a hook for posts posted through email only? Thanks!!

    I've opened an enhancement request here for you:


    Would you mind adding to it with your reasons for needing this? That way we can see if this is something that would be useful to other users. Thanks!

    Well, at my job, we are building a repository of cool tech innovations. Currently, people are accustomed to just sending an all staff email to share their finds. I have added the wordpress post email to our all staff list so that we can capture all items that people share around. However, not every all staff email is tech related, nor are any of them formatted into a post.
