    Auto Thumbnailer is indeed a good example. There are quite a few other plugins that do the same thing in the repository, but this one will do the job just fine.

    Hi there! Thanks for the recommendation.

    Yes, the post attached in the mail ist automatically set as featured image, but…
    it also shows in the post, very large size.
    In my case it would be enough the image to appear as featured (top) and not in the post itself, bellow.
    Here a jpg of what I mean:

    Another solution would also be for me if, without sending an image as attachment, a pre-set image was set as featured image.

    If you know how I could solve this please let me know. Regards, Felix

    I’m afraid that’s not possible, as you can’t send an image via email without inserting it into the post.

    You could, however, customize your theme to avoid the layout issue with large images. You could do this with CSS, and by adding a $content_width value to your theme:

    ok! Thank you for the alternate solution Jeremy, I will do that.

    Of all things I tried, only this worked for me, but unfortunately, I faced same problem of featured photo also staying inside post and very large.

    I dont know a thing about CSS coding and will like to resolve this.
    Or is there a plugin to set image width/size?

    Thanks

    If you let me know your site URL, and how large you’d like your images to be, I can take a look!

    I need the images to be 430 pixels max in width. Thats the max image size that can fit INTO the write-ups

    This should fix things:

    .single #post-single img {
    	max-width: 430px;
    	height: auto;
    	float: right;
    }

    Wow,
    Thanks first of all.
    But Where do I put this?
    On Single.php ?
    If yes, where in the single.php ? Begining, middle or end ?
    Also if you check my articles, i thought it should float to the left?

    You can add this code to your theme stylesheet, or to the custom CSS editor available under Appearance > Edit CSS in your dashboard.

    I’d suggest saving the CSS I gave to you first, and change the float value to left if you’re not happy with the look.

    Let me know how it goes.

    Sorry my reply is looking like that of a dummy.
    When I go to Appearance > Edit CSS, I see just the following:

    /*
    Welcome to Custom CSS!

    CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) is a kind of code that tells the browser how
    to render a web page. You may delete these comments and get started with
    your customizations.

    By default, your stylesheet will be loaded after the theme stylesheets,
    which means that your rules can take precedence and override the theme CSS
    rules. Just write here what you want to change, you don’t need to copy all
    your theme’s stylesheet content.
    */

    They are on 1-12 lines
    Then on the right side of the page, I see the publishing options:

    Preprocessor: None Edit
    Mode: Add-on Edit
    Media Width: Default Edit

    Then Preview and Save Stylesheet
    ================================

    So at what point do I paste this your code?

    You can paste that code in the editor on the left: remove the introduction text after you’ve read it, and paste the code there, and then click to save your changes,
