Support » Plugin: Postie » Dangerous – might delete all your emails

  • Though I am still convinced it is a good plugin, my first installation was a shock: it destroyed all my e-mails. I installed it like any other WP plugin, then I was required to enter my mailbox details what I did. After a first test run I found my mailbox completely empty! Hundreds of mails in my inbox had been removed.

    I did not set up a new and empty mailbox, I used an existing one, which was a big mistake. I am sure the documentation tells you that somewhere, but people should definitely be warned before their first test run.

    It should NOT be the default behavior to empty the mailbox after processing the mail script the first time. Maybe I misunderstood something.

    This behavior is documented, but I agree that it could be more in your face. I’ll update the settings page to be more clear.
