Postie ok, but paid add on did not
By , for WP 4.5.3

Postie worked, but I need to post to custom post types. I paid for the shortcode addon, which did nothing, so I emailed support twice, and like the addon nothing happened. Waste of money and will be clawing back from my bank as no response. It could quite easily have been me doing something silly, but we will never know.

Fix for Bug Found & Withheld - With a Suggestion to Pay Instead
By , for WP 4.5.3

This plugin wasn't working properly & contained a bug.
The developer then found a fix for this bug, but withheld its release, and suggested we pay for a workaround instead.
If that's not in poor taste, not sure what is.
How can the author of a plugin have a fix for a bug in the plugin and withhold it - then recommend that we pay for an add-on instead?
Smh.

Excellent

Very useful plugin and also excellent support from the developer.

Woot! Fantastic plugin!
By , for WP 4.5.2

I wanted to use WordPress' post-by-email function, but due to the formatting of the emails (a government listerv), it didn't work.

But with the extra help of Postie, it works very well now. It's fantastic! Really grateful for it. Thank you, developer!

I am especially pleased that I can run tests on the config, and it'll report if there are emails ready to be retrieved, which I can also tell it to get them right then, which is super helpful for troubleshooting, etc.

I changed around the settings a bit to get the images (sent as attachments) to work and it's all working perfectly. So thrilled about this!

A must have ...
By , for WP 4.5.2

An excellent tool, if you spend a bit of time to understand how it works. Wayne the developer is there to help if you are stuck, though most questions are already answered in the support forums.

I would strongly recommend to wordpress to acquire this plug-in. It is a must have, not less.

Great Plugin for Multi- Contributer Websites
By , for WP 4.4.2

So many websites are managed by one person but there may be a whole staff that wants to post to the site. Postie makes it so easy for an authorized person to create an Email where they specify the Category, write an article, add a picture and then just send the email to a predefined address. The email is then auto posted to the website. I work for a non-profit and Postie is going to help make our site so much more current without adding work to my desk.
Thank you for a really innovative plug-in.

Works with qTranslate X
By , for WP 4.4.1

Test it at the moment with qTranslate X.

With the language codes for each language it works to fill the post in the different languages by email.

Nice job.

All the options I was looking for, and some I didn't know I wanted or needed.

Much easier workflow, and supports custom attachment embedding.

I'm using Postie in conjunction with Google Doc Embedder, an that way, any mails with Word or PDF attachments, that needs to be posted on our intranet website, are forwarded to a dedicated email address, and Poste creates a draft for, embedding the attachment for me. All I have to do, is to login, choose a featured image, and click publish. Workflow is much easier now. Thanks :)
