    If I forward a message with one .jpg file attachment to my postie account, postie retrieves and posts it. If I forward a message with two .jpg files attached to my postie account, it does not even recognize that a new message is waiting.

    What do you see if you click the “Test Config” button?

    Please send the message to so I can see what is happening.

    I apologize for not responding sooner…

    I have a similar problem right now with an email with just a single jpeg image. I have forwarded the same message I forwarded to our Postie gmail account to (Subject = “Fwd: Kankakee River near Shelby IN”). Here is the “Test Config” output:

    Looking at your email Postie may be getting confused by all the dashes (-). Try setting the “Drop The Signature From Mail” setting to “No”

    The “Drop The Signature From Mail” setting is already set to “No”

    My test system created a complete post based on the email you sent me so there is something else going on.

    Please make sure there is an email with this issue waiting to be posted then click the Run Postie (Debug) button and send the output to

    Well, I have been playing around with Postie settings today to try and control how forwarded Gmail messages are parsed by Postie/Wordpress, and now the problem email with the jpeg image posts just fine.

    I changed so many things in the “Message” settings, I’m not sure what did the trick. My main problem now is that there are all sorts of <div> tags in the messages posted via Postie. Is there a document with clear instructions regarding the “Message” settings?

    I really appreciate your plugin and your help!

    Thanks for letting me know.

    There isn’t great documentation currently. Postie 2.0 is in the works which will be a major upgrade and will have better docs.
