[resolved] Jetpack Post by Email not posting emails from mailing list (3 posts)

    I'm trying to set up JP's Post by Email to post emails sent to a mailing list. I've conducted several tests:

    1. Sending an email to the generated post.wordpress.com address from an address other than my wp.com address.
    2. Sending an email to other recipients, including the post.wordpress.com address.
    3. Sending an email where all recipients were in the BCC field.
    4. Created a mailing list and subscribed the post.wordpress.com address as well as other addresses.

    #1-3 posted. And yeah, I know, keep the post.wordpress.com address secret. I sent these to my other email addresses.
    #4 The "welcome to the mailing list" email posted, but emails sent to the mailing list did not.

    Is this intentionally unsupported?

    I've followed the troubleshooting steps outlined here before posting. The XML-RPC test fails using the Jetpack Debug Test, but when I manually run

    curl -d '<methodCall><methodName>demo.sayHello</methodName></methodCall>' http://news.sisr-issr.org/xmlrpc.php
    from my computer, I get the expected result:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

    I also get the expected "XML-RPC server accepts POST requests only." message when navigating to http://news.sisr-issr.org/xmlrpc.php, so I'm not quite sure why the Jetpack Debug Test fails. Disabling all my plugins does not affect the results, and I am using Twenty Eleven, Version 1.5.

    I'd appreciate any help you can offer. Let me know if I can provide any more details.

    All the best,

    Is this intentionally unsupported?

    Before a post is published to your site, we scan the email and reject anything that may be spam or that you may have sent to the Post By Email address by mistake. We consider mailing list emails as unwanted, because allowing such emails would potentially allow multiple people to post to your site without your knowledge.

    That's why the 2 test emails you've sent were rejected.

    I hope this clarifies things a bit.

    Thanks Jeremy; I figured that was the case. Thanks for your prompt reply!
