Support » Fixing WordPress » email posts to and from WP

  • 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…

    Huh… maybe we are…



    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.
