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.

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!
