    Is there a way to make the email automatically post?
    When sending the email it’s marking the post as “(pending)”, see below.

    Found 1 new message.
    Posted: [TITLE] (pending)

    So far I have to manually mark the new post as publish to get it to show on the site. Thank you for your help in advance!

    Hi Ryan,

    To determine whether a user is allowed to post without review, the plugin looks up the sender’s email address. If there’s a WordPress user with that email, and the user has the publish_posts capability (Author, Editor or Admin by default), it will automatically publish it. Otherwise, it will get set to pending so an admin can review.

    Is the email you’re sending from the same as your email in your WordPress profile? (Under Users->Your Profile). If you’re sending from that address and it’s still being marked as pending, please re-open this thread. 🙂

    That did it! Thank you Kat 🙂

    hi Kat,

    I am having a similar problem. I created a user with admin privileges, but when the email comes in Email by Post keeps it as pending. I also have tried it from my superadmin email and it always posts as pending needs review.
