Post via email => Subject Only? (7 posts)

    I just installed a clean wordpress blog on my server and tried to set up the post via email function. Everything seemed to be working smoothly, but when I send myself an email the only thing I get is the email subject in the post title, but the post entry is blank and empty. Any ideas on what is happening?

    I have just installed WP version 2.3.2 and am experiencing the same problem as MrBobDobolina. Does anyone know how to solve this problem? Thanks in advance!

    I had this problem emailing from gmail. I found that it went through only if I used the plain text editor instead of the rich text editor.

    Any further resolution of this issue?

    I just installed WP version 2.2.2 and have the same problem as etsui and MrBobDobolina. I tried plain text as hawkwing3141 suggests through gmail as well and the only thing that came through in the post was the email subject matter.

    Here's the message from Gmail: Author = (name)@gmail.com

    Content-type: text/plain, Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit, boundary:

    Raw content:

    Author: 1

    Posted title: Test from Gmail

    My name is Olivian BREDA. I think I've found a solution for a few of my blogs to be able to post via gmail. I want to share my solution with you.

    I've learned PHP myself just for this problem and I'm happy to be able to present you with my solution.

    You can find the wp-mail.php file created by on and details on the file on my blog:
    WordPress: How to use wp-mail.php correctly in Gmail blog posts? This is my solution.

    I use my solution on blogs using WordPress 2.5.

    I hope you'll like my solution.

    If you have any feed-back, I'm happy to reply on my blog.

    WordPress, thanks for the great blogging platform! ;)
