    You can specify the post type by including it as the first part of the subject E.g. post type//real subject

    “image” is not a post type unless you have specifically added it. More typically “Image” is a post format which was introduced in WP 3.1

    I think what you really want is Postie to support “Post Formats” and that seems like a good idea to me as well.

    Hi Wayne,

    I guess I misunderstood. I thought format and type was the same thing. Indeed I’m actually talking about post format. What is a post type then though?

    Well it would be great if post format could be set from mail. I’m using a theme where the post format is really important (

    Nice photographs!

    Yes, I am planning on adding this as a feature soon.

    Thanks 🙂

    I just moved the blog to Tumblr. Less features, but also less headache.
