    Hi, I am having trouble posting via email and allowing my users to email a post.
    First, for the email a post, I'm using wp-email.php. Here are the PHP error messages I get:
    Warning: smtpsend(class-smtp.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home2/www/thepete/theblog2/wp-includes/class-phpmailer.php on line 463
    Warning: smtpsend(): Failed opening 'class-smtp.php' for inclusion (include_path='') in /home2/www/thepete/theblog2/wp-includes/class-phpmailer.php on line 463
    Fatal error: Cannot instantiate non-existent class: smtp in /home2/www/thepete/theblog2/wp-includes/class-phpmailer.php on line 530

    Then, regarding the post by email, I send an email to my special address and it doesn't show up. I point my browser at wp-mail.php and I get this error:
    "Ooops POP3: premature NOOP OK, NOT an RFC 1939 Compliant server"
    Someone else was having this trouble but apparently fixed it with the simple addition of a "!" alas, I tried it and it didn't work.
    Any help at all would be appreciated! Thanks in advance!

    Just as a hunch, you did copy class-phpmailer.php and class-smtp.php from the origial package to the wp-includes directory?
    Not sure about the post by email error, haven't used that feature.

    Yeah, I did. That was one of the first things I checked. So, I guess this error isn't normal. I'll try DLing the entire package again and reinstalling it.
    So, I guess no one has any idea what's up with my other question?

    Still can't manage to email posts to or from my WP--nobody can give me a hand on this one? Or, I guess, these two.
    I'm still getting the same PHP errors when I try to execute the wp-email.php script and the same "There doesn’t seem to be any new mail." message even though I know for a fact there is email in that inbox from an email address WP recognizes.
    As a 2 week old WP user and a relative PHP n00b, I'd really appreciate any suggestions.

    Well, it's nice to know someone else is having the same problem--I just wish someone else could give us some advice on this. We can't be the only two people who have had this problem...

    Well I try to email to wp to post as well and I don't get errors but I don't get the posts on my blog either. I think I did all the necessary preparations though..

    Did you set up the cron job to run the wp-mail.php (I think that's the right filename)?

    It is working now. Thanks for the answer.
