    I have been trying to search the web, the forums, and anything else I can find to get Post by Email working on WordPress 2.7 or 2.8.

    I am trying to use a Gmail email account.

    There are only three setting imputs so it is a little confusing how it can wrong.

    Username and Password confirmed multiple times.

    pop.gmail.com --> 110
    pop.gmail.com --> 995

    Both the above where tried.. to to be safe.

    2 test emails in inbox with just text..

    When I try to run the /wp-mail.php i get this error... "POP3 quit: connection does not exist"

    I would really really like to use this feature and not sure what to do now.

    It now workd for me you must have the full ssl://pop.gmail.com in the box for it to work not just pop.gmail.com.
    And if you add in an iFrame it will auto-check every 15mins for new mail so u dont have to manually check.

    I ended up installing a plugin to make better use of this function. I have installed Postie and am quite pleased with it thus far.

    i must be hit or miss with this, because ssl://pop.gmail.com with port 995 filled in is still giving me the error. I have read that it may be due the the php.ini settings. However the hosting site doesn't allow that to be customized.

    I know this might be a little bit old but it works for me. I've confirmed that using the ssl://pop.gmail.com with the port 995 works. Even for Google Apps for domains. No plugins or anything, the only thing that is a bummer is that the posts go into "pending" instead of published. This might be a hassle for some.
