Support » Fixing WordPress » email to blog – Makes post title but content empty

  • 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 =
    Author =

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

    Raw content:

    Author: 2

    Posted title: Please work

    I have ABSOLUTELY same problem, but I use plain text

    aldridgebs, try setting gmail to plain text – worked for me!

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

    I am getting this message too. Suject/Title is passed but content is not.

    I’ve tried Gmail and work (ms exchange) and bot are coming up:

    Author =

    Author: 1

    Posted title: test

    Mission complete, message 1 deleted.

    It posts this:


    FACE=3D”Arial”>testyui LANG=3D”en-us”>

    LANG=3D”en-us”>Ted =
    (and my signature details)

    FACE=3D”Arial”>The World is a book, and those who do not travel read =
    only a page. ~St. Augustine LANG=3D”en-us”> LANG=3D”en-us”>

    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! 😉
