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.

Loading Plugin caused Spam(T.A.F exploit)
By , for WP 3.9.1

Within a very short time of loading the Postie plugin - off the WordPress.org plugin site I was contacted by the web host to say that they had detected a lot of emails sent from the site (It was a clean new WP site). They discovered the Postie plugin had sent approximately 70K messages. (darn - I hate to have contributed to that).
I had found the plugin via some reviews (thought they were safe ones).
I cannot recommend using this plugin and I suggest anyone using it should be cautious and check it has not been compromised.

Used to work

This has been a staple of my site for over 4 years. However, the recent changes to programming have made it unuseable, leaves blank posts. If you can find a version prior to January 2013, use it.
