About

Wayne Allen has been the maintainer since November 2012.

Postie was originally developed by John Blade followed by Dirk Elmendork then Rob Felty.

As far as I can tell there once was a guy named John Blade. He took some of the original wp-mail.php code and started hacking away on it. He actually got pretty far. About the time I discovered WordPress and his little hack – called WP-Mail at the time – he went on a vacation or something. There were some problems with the script, and it was missing some features I wanted. I hacked away at it and got it into a place where it did what I wanted. I started posting about it since I figured other people might want the features.

Postie is not just the best-supported WordPress plugin I’ve used, but is unquestionably the best-supported piece of software I have ever encountered. Thank you for your awesome responsiveness!

I needed to send items via email and Postie has met all my expectations. It is also frequently updated.

I’m using this on a website for users to submit their testimonial to the admin. Basically I’m using contact form 7 to generate the content with the proper code which is emailed to a secret email address… subsequently Postie grabs that email and parses it automatically for me, places it as a draft, and emails the admin there’s a new drafted testimonial.

Works really well– main issue was WP-mail wasn’t letting me push the new email as a draft, but postie lets you do basically everything under the sun!

Fantastic plugin!
