Message

Preferred Text Type
Emails typically contain both plain and html formatted versions of your email. Use html if you want the “rich text” version of the email used to create the post.

Text Fallback
Use plain if html is missing and vice versa.

Default category
Specifies the category to apply to the post by default.

Match short category
Try to match categories using ‘starts with logic’ otherwise only do exact matches. Note that custom taxonomies will not be found if this setting is ‘No’

Use colon to match category
One option for specifying a category is to place it on the subject line followed by a colon (:). E.g. “category1: The real subject”. However, some mailing lists include colons for other reasons so you can turn off the colon based category detection if needed.

Use dash to match category
One option for specifying a category is to place it on the subject line surrounded by the dash (-). E.g. “-category1- The real subject”. However, some mailing lists include dashes for other reasons so you can turn off the dash based category detection if needed.

Use square bracket to match category
One option for specifying a category is to place it on the subject line surrounded by square brackets ([]). E.g. “[category1] The real subject”. However, some mailing lists include square brackets for other reasons so you can turn off the square bracket based category detection if needed.

Default tag(s)
The optional list of tags to be applied to the post.Separated each tag with commas. E.g. “tag1, tag2, long tag”

Default Post Status
The status to assign to the post.

Default Post Format
The format to assign to the post.

Default Post Type
The type to assign to the post.

Default Title
If no subject is found then use this text. It is unusual for a subject to be missing. Some SMS to email systems don’t add a subject which is why this setting exists.

When a reply is detected you can choose how you want Postie to treat the reply.

Filter newlines
Plain text email have automatic newlines about every 70 characters. If set to “Yes” Postie will remove these newlines, but will retain any double newlines as a paragraph break. This setting has no effect on HTML emails.

Replace newline characters with html line breaks (<br />)
Filter newlines must be turned on for this option to take effect

Return rejected mail to sender
If the email is rejected for any reason should the sender be notified?

Send post confirmation email to
Who should receive an email for each successfully processed email?

Automatically convert urls to links
Should bare URLs be converted to real links?

Encoding for pages and feeds
The character set for your blog. UTF-8 is recommended, but you may need something else if your WordPress is very old.

Drop The Signature From Mail
Use the signature patterns (below) to try and find the email signature and remove it.

Signature Patterns
Put each pattern on a separate line. Patterns are regular expressions and are put inside ‘/^{pattern}\s?$/miu’. For HTML content the inner text of each element is evaluated against the pattern. E.g for <p>some test</p><p>– <br>signature</p> Postie will evaluate ‘some text’, ‘– ‘ and ‘signature’ against the pattern(s) and the first time it find a match it will assume that is the signature and remove it and anything below it from the post.
