Postie allows you to create posts via email, including many advanced features not found in WordPress's default Post by Email feature.
Postie works just fine. I installed it for posting while being on road. Though it seems to be a powerful tool, installation is easy and self explaining. It took me just a few minutes to adjust the settings according to my needs.
If I was stuck on an island and could only keep 3 WordPress plugins (yes this island happens to have wifi, LOL), Postie would be one of them.
Combine this with IFTTT and you can do even more amazing things.
I knocked off a star because it's not the perfect solution. Images that are attached from the iOS camera roll need to be renamed and resized.
I find it's just more efficient to use a separate iOS app for renaming and resizing - and then paste the embed codes into the e-mail before sending it out.
Other than that, haven't run into any problems.
Thank you. It becomes better from version to version
The best wordpress plugin for posting by mail. Gives lot of options to choose from.
It even gives option to check mail connection and to post mail manually from the admin panel.
Works really good, does the job much easier!
Integrating and testing now. Excellent work. This is a donate-able offense......and I surely will as soon as finances allow. THANKS!!
This is a very useful plugin with fantastic support. I've created a private, sort of an "Evernote" type of WordPress installation for a company I work with and Postie has proven to be a favorite resource for the people who use it. They can simply forward emails and attachments into their private WordPress site and and find their data later.
Wayne's support is really great and he deserves donations and some applause for offering such a good plugin / utility for free. The add-on plugins that are for sale are reasonably priced and equally useful.
Great plugin Wayne.
I'm using it with a desktop ticker bar as a corporate desktop communication system so that users can email to wordpress and have their messages appear on the desktops. I'd love to be able to delete posts by email too. That would round it off nicely.
I haven't mastered all the options yet, but I like them! I match this email-to-post sequence up with BetterNotificationsForWordpress to send the new post out to email. This way my registered visitors don't have to open their browsers on a lazy morning, they can keep up with the news right in their email. Postie, for my purposes, replaces Post-By-Email.
