    Checked the forum, but I didn't see this question...

    I setup an account for email to blog to work through.
    I setup the admin section
    I sent an email from gmail to blog account mail.
    Accessed wp-mail.php

    Blog entry appears with title but no content.

    Confirmed that information actually makes it to blog account but lost while accessing wp-mail.php

    wp-mail.php returns :

    Author = brandon.aldridge@gmail.com
    Author = brandon.aldridge@gmail.com

    Content-type: multipart/alternative, Content-Transfer-Encoding: , boundary: ----=_Part_1985_28202078.1192738501263

    Raw content:

    Author: 2

    Posted title: Please work
    Posted content:

    What version of WordPress are you using? This was fixed in version 2.3.

    I confirm that the email must be in plain text, *not* HTML format.
    In this way the title *and* the content are published correctly.

    I had to set the email to plain text for it to work. I installed the postie plugin and I can send regular mails now.

    My name is Olivian BREDA. I think I've found a solution for a few of my blogs to be able to post via gmail. I want to share my solution with you.

    I've learned PHP myself just for this problem and I'm happy to be able to present you with my solution.

    You can find the wp-mail.php file created by on and details on the file on my blog:
    WordPress: How to use wp-mail.php correctly in Gmail blog posts? This is my solution.

    I use my solution on blogs using WordPress 2.5.

    I hope you'll like my solution.

    If you have any feed-back, I'm happy to reply on my blog.

    WordPress, thanks for the great blogging platform! ;)
