Support » Plugin: Postie » Unauthorized Emails Able to Post

  • Resolved rayholt


    Allow Anyone To Post Via Email is set to “No”, however posts are still being made to the site from email addresses that aren’t users or on the Authorized Addresses list.

    Notify on Error is setup and I do get an “Unauthorized Post Attempt” email notification, but at the same time I get the “Email imported” for that email as well… which contradicts itself.

    I’ve read through the FAQ’s and support forum, but can seem to find anything that points me in the right direction.

    Any insight to what could possibly cause this to happen would be greatly appreciated.

    Are the posts visible? By default unauthorized posts are set to draft so that you can review them.

    They are not visible, but I do have the default post status set to draft… so all submissions were draft.

    I do see how if I change default to publish that the unauthorized users are set as drafts, whereas the authorized users have their messages published.

    Sorry if this was an oversight on my part in any support documentation, as I thought the unauthorized emails would simply be rejected completed and not turned into any type of post.

    Thank you for the quick response and clarification.
