    Hi there,
    I scrolled through the support-forum for postie but didn't really get lucky.
    When writing a new post on WP I use a couplpe of predefined custom fields that I would need also when using postie to add posts via email.

    so far postie works great an does almost everything what I need it to do, but I didn't find out how to use the custom fields.

    Also I've used the date-function to define the post-date. I would need also to use a function to define the time of the post, as the articles I add are both date and time related.

    Hopefully I can get help here?

    You could using the "postie_post" filter as described http://wordpress.org/support/topic/request-auto-gallery-feature?replies=6#post-3707833 to add your custom fields.

    I've updated the date command in 1.4.22 to accept time values as well.

    Thanks for this.

    I downloaded the update.

    However I tried to get along with the filter. I must admit that I am definitely less than a beginner in this area and I have absolutely no clue in which php I would have to add and where to insert this. I found out a lot by just playing around and trying, but obviousely I don't want to screw up the existing config :-)

    Maybe there is somebody out there in the world that can give me the hint?

    I am using 5 different custom-fields that I need to be able to match with the email.

    custom-field1 = [Loc]
    custom-field2 = [address]
    custom-field3 = [quantity]
    custom-field4 = [engine]
    custom-field5 = [notification]

    Many thanks in advance.

    one more thing.

    since the update, the date-function seems to me not working anymore...

    Is this correct or do I something wrong?

    Hi,

    in the body
    :start
    date: 2013-01-09

    text
    text
    text
    text
    text
    text
    :end

    That was before you published the new release and worked fine.

    After the new release I tried to modify in different ways the date-parameter, but nothing worked...
    for example
    :start
    date: 2013-01-09 17:55:00
    :end

    :start
    date: 2013-01-09
