Enabled email Posting

Posted by Steven Kennedy on November 13, 2010


I’ve enabled the email posting functionality in WordPress. This will enable me to send an email to a special email address and it’ll get posted on my Blog.

The email address is randomly generated when you enable the feature for your blog and is something that would be very hard to remember and/or to guess so I suppose there’s not much likelihood of someone guessing it an posting bogus posts.

It would have been nice if WordPress limited the source of the inbound emails. That is, required you to register what email addresses are allowed to send to the mailbox. Amazon do this for the Kindle. You have to register what email address are allowed to send to your Kindle associated email address.
