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.

An easy 4 stars
By , for WP 3.6.1

Works well and deserves 5 stars but for the time check being broken. In the config settings postie allows adding a time differential to account for time zones but it doesn't appear to work. Author says it's fixed in the next release.
I wasn't able to configure postie to work with Gmail, it just didn't want to happen, but was able to easily configure to my hosting account email (totalchoicehosting.com) which proved to be a good thing. The site I'm building serves two distinct groups each of whom needs a distinct email address to post - I set up all the needed addresses for posting and then forward them all to a central address that postie sees.
Wasn't able to find anything better than postie!

Problems
By , for WP 3.5

Seems this plugin is now under very active development and no sort of release cycle; Thus I've been updating this plugin on an almost daily basis, more bugs than fixes it seems.

articles sent via email are auto-publishing even though this option is not set in the options.

Plugin has never been able to filter out my email footer correctly either.
