Support » Fixing WordPress » Post via e-mail not working

  • Resolved nunovo


    I have WP set up on my domain account, and haven’t used the Post via e-mail for months. But now that I started again, the posts are only getting to my mailserver, not to WordPress. I’m guessing that there may be a config setting that needs tweaking.

    Is this something that that can be fixed fairly easily?

  • I wish it did!

    Unlike rbr451, I haven’t set up a parallel account like that.
    Every post I’ve sent just sits on my ISP server until I open up the webmail client and delete it.

    Sorry if I’m stating the obvious but have you double checked all of the settings in Admin/Settings/Writing/Post by email?

    Checked through ? Especially Step 3, Testing and Troubleshooting sections.

    I double checked in the sense that I went through each of the steps outlined on the /wp-admin/options-writing.php page of the blog concerned. Then did it all again with a different account – which failed as well. Then did it again on a wordpress-hosted blog – which was successful.

    The page you’ve pointed to is more complex, but I will work through it and hopefully find the missing item that way.


    Two things:
    1) the login name requires the addition of domain info, e.g.
    2) activation.

    I opted for the iframe/footer/refresh mode.

    Both of these could be mentioned in the options page, no?

    So an appreciative thanks to you for the pointer to the Blog_by_Email Codex page.

    Dear All
    I followed your advices and made a big Iframe to see the message, I got:
    Author is
    Author: 1
    Posted title: testing in large Iframe
    Mission complete. Message 1 deleted.

    The Auther is correct
    The message title is correct
    BUT WHY WAS IT DELETED ?? Besides not directed to the assigned Category?



    OK done
    I’m sorry for disturbing you all.. The email messages were sent and pending.!
