Support » Fixing WordPress » Post By Email – unable to post

  • I followed the post-by-email directions in the codex: I set up a new email address (, I entered the incoming mailserver (, port 110, “secretaddress” and password in the “writing” section in my wordpress account.

    I also added an editor account for my blog. I can send emails from the editor email address to, and the emails are received. But, when I went to check, all i got is an “oops, this is embarrasing, we can’t find the page you’re looking for” error message.

    So after reading through the forum, I tried (without the installdir). Now I get either

    POP3 connect: Error [110] [Connection timed out]

    or the “slow down cowboy” error message.

    I have tried changing my incoming server to ssl:// but it doesn’t change anything.

    Any idea what I might be doing wrong?

    I’m using version 3.4.2.
