Postie Size limits (2 posts)

    Every now and then, when I send an e-mail to the e-mail address I set up for posting, the e-mail gets lost. When I click on “Run Postie� under the Configure Postie menu I receive the following message:

    Connecting to mail.yoursite.com:110 (pop3))
    Mission complete, message 1 deleted.
    mike@yoursite.com is authorized to post as the administrator
    Email has following attachments:text plain
    image jpeg

    The image gets copied/placed in the wp-photos directory, but the post does not show up at all.

    Every step I take shows me that the e-mail gets delivered to the address, the image copied, but the post does not take place.

    As I have done research, it appears that it is a pixel issue and not an actual file size issue.

    I have one image that is 522KB but has dimentions of 1075×806. That image is copied to the wp-photos directory, and the post happens just fine.

    My original image is 506KB and has a dimention of 2560×1920. That image is copied to the wp-photos directory, but the post never happens.

    Anyone have any idea how to fix this one? I am setting up the posting for a family member who is not very computer savy. I don’t want them to have to try to re-size their images, just so they can e-mail them.

    I am currently running Word Press 1.5.2 and Postie My php.ini has a memory limit of 80MB.

    Thanks in advance.
