I love using Postie to post via email. Makes things so much easier

Very impressed with this plugin! You can do some pretty complex processing of incoming emails if you have a bit of PHP coding knowledge. Out of the box, you can setup some very useful rules that will allow your site to get fresh content easily.

An excellent tool, if you spend a bit of time to understand how it works. Wayne the developer is there to help if you are stuck, though most questions are already answered in the support forums.

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.

This is exactly what I wanted. Choosing post types, categories, and tags are great.

Postie and the Postie Shortcode Add-On did not work perfectly with my custom post type right out of the box. However, this plugin has great support and the developer went out of his way to help me get it working the way I wanted it to.

perfect! ... many settings for customizing. Works fine, setup needs some testing of the parameters, but even with included debug-feature it's easy 🙂

IMHO, while travelling, I believe, Postie is the best option for WordPress blog so far. WordPress apps on any mobile platform do not work well, plus emails work best on bad connections which is always the case.

The best wordpress plugin for posting by mail. Gives lot of options to choose from.
It even gives option to check mail connection and to post mail manually from the admin panel.

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!

It works like expected, easy to use, but with a lot of options and hooks to extend the plugin.
Last but not least: Great service – author is very helpfufl.
Thanks for this plugin and your help!

I have used postie for many years. It power six of my paid members websites and makes sending updates and posting in my members areas happen in a click! The support is second to none if you need help, and its so worth any minor issue you have if you have any, likely not if your running newer versions of WP, PHP, and the plugin.

I was looking for a plugin that takes an e-Mail, writes a post and sets the first image as featured image for that new Post.
with POSTIE it worked perfectly in 2 minutes.

I use your plugin for more than 5 years!
I have never faced any problem. This plugin works fine for me.
Thank you

Thanks for them much for developing this plug-in... we are using it on our whale watching blog to showcase images from the daily trips.

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!

Postie made it possible for us to replace our “mailman” mailing list with a WordPress based forum.

We have a mix of people that are comfortable with web forum postings and another group that miss their mailing lists.

This group of people receive email summaries of each wordpress post or comment and they can send new posts or reply to current posts as comments using Postie.

Very good and useful plugin.

The author Wayne Allen provides excellent support and really tries to resolve any issues we users describe.

This solution is perfect since my client - is never on a desktop but is always on his smart phone - even while on the boat. He needed an easy way to post the whale sightings of the day. I tried setting him up with the mobile version of wordpress to make posts but he got very frustrated. Looks like having him simply email from his phone instead will work great - Thanks for building it.!

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

*”it does exactly what it says on the tin”

The instructions are excellent, whilst WordPress may be happy with a ***** rating approach, for those of us who prefer not to code, I would nominate this as an exemplar of how plugins should be delivered…well done.

This plugin is incredibly useful. While WP lets you post “posts,” Postie goes further and posts “pages” too, which is a lifesaver when you have 1,000+ pages to post.

There are numerous other features in the free version already, and in the very reasonable paid addon, you can set things like the slug and custom fields, which is just the icing on the cake.

In addition, the author offers prompt support and has already made several minor improvements in response to my help requests over the last couple weeks.

Very highly recommended!

Postie works just fine. I installed it for posting while being on road. Though it seems to be a powerful tool, installation is easy and self explaining. It took me just a few minutes to adjust the settings according to my needs.
