[resolved] How Long for Post Via E-mail to Post (2 posts)

    How long does it take for the email to post entries to show up in the blog? I sent a post about 10 minutes ago and it hasn't posted yet. Am i supposed to set up a cron job or something? Those instructions were included if I am supposed to. How often are the emails parsed to post and how do I isolate the discrepancy to find out where something in the process is wrong? Are there any indicators that something is wrong other than the post not posting? All help is appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    I found the answer. I had to add the email I was sending from as an author and then add this code to the footer:

    <iframe src="http://yourblogdomain/wordpressinstalldir/wp-mail.php" name="mailiframe" width="0" height="0" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" title=""></iframe>
