    I have custom post types to which my emails are saved. That all works.

    However, I use a custom field 'url' to save a link in. I cannot get to save a URL from email in that field. The URL just vanishes. Has anyone of you been successful with this?

    I've tried adding the following to the subject and content of the email.
    - [title of the field as shown in the admin interface]:[space][a url]
    - [title of the field as shown in the admin interface]: [a url]
    - [title of the field as used in code]:[space][a url]
    - [title of the field as used in code]:[a url]

    Any thoughts on how to get it done? Tnx a million!

    Postie doesn't automatically populate custom fields, you will need to write a Postie plugin as described here:

    In your filter function you would scan the email for your URLs and update the custom fields.
