Remote Featured Image

This addon will look through your email and find all the images that were not included in the email (e.g. <img> tags). It will examine the images and select the largest one as the featured image.

There are no settings, just install and activate.

Fix Video/oEmbed Links

The Fix Video/oEmbed Links AddOn will “undo” the formatting that many email clients add to links which will enable videos or any embeddable content supported by WordPress to be displayed inline rather than as a link. This will only work for services supported by WordPress or added by another plugin. See for a list.

For example, you paste into your email. By the time Postie sees the email it looks like <a href=””></a> which WordPress doesn’t know is a link to a video so it is just displayed as a link.

With the addon enabled Postie will recognize the content as a YouTube video and alter the markup so WordPress knows how to display it correctly.

Text Extractor

The Text Extractor AddOn will look for any attached PDF, DOC, DOCX or RTF file and extract the text and use that text for the post content.

Note that this addon only extracts text, not formatting and not images.

No configuration is required. Just install and activate the plugin.

PDF Embedder AddOn

The PDF Embedder AddOn integrates with the PDF Embedder plugin allowing you to email PDFs and have them display inline rather than requiring the user to click on the PDF icon and download it and have it launch in Acrobat Reader.

The AddOn is compatible with the Free, Premium and Secure editions of PDF Embedder.

You can control whether the PDF is at the top or bottom of the post by using the Image/Attachment Location setting on the Image tab.

Category for Media AddOn

The Category for Media AddOn will assign all the categories you assigned to the post to all media items included in the email.

For example if you assign the category “horse” to the post, it will also get assigned to any images in the email. This can be used to set up galleries where you show images for a specific category.

This addon is compatible with the Category Per User AddOn

Note that this AddOn will not apply media categories created by Enhanced Media Library.

PublishPress Future/Post Expirator AddOn

PublishPress Future (formerly known as Post Expirator) is a great plugin that lets you set a date for a post to be removed. See for more information.

This AddOn allows you to specify the PublishPress Future options in your email. For example:

[postexpire when="2021-08-09 17:00" how="delete"]

This will set the post to expire on Aug 8, 2019 at 5:00pm by deleting the post.


This will set the post to expire on default date by setting the post status to “Draft”.


when should be some date and time in the future. If not supplied it will used the configured default.

how should be any of the options that PublishPress Future provides except for the category choices. If not provided the post will be changed to “draft” status.

Code Word AddOn

This AddOn lets you add some extra control around what gets published by looking at the content for either a required word/phrase or forbidden words/phrases. This provides an additional layer of protection from undesired emails getting published even if they are from an authorized user.

You can specify a required word/phrase that must be present in the email otherwise it won’t be published. You can leave this option blank if you don’t want to require a word/phrase.

You can provide a list of words/phrases of “forbidden” words. If any of these are found then the email isn’t published. This can also be left blank.

The action options let you control what happens if the email isn’t going to be published. If you choose “ignore” and you have the “Return rejected mail to sender” set to Yes then the sender will receive an email letting them know it wasn’t published and why. If you select “draft” the email will be turned into a post, but published in draft status so it won’t show up until you go in and manually publish it.

You can also specify if you want to look in the subject, body or both.

Support AddOn

Please do not install this plugin unless requested to do so.

If you are trying to troubleshoot on your own you just need to click the “debug” button on the Postie settings page.

If you do install this AddOn please make sure you have started a support thread.

This AddOn will create a “zip” file with copies of the emails processed and the Postie logs and place it in your media library.

Once you have “purchased” the AddOn (don’t worry it is free) download the AddOn and install the AddOn by using the Upload Plugin button on the Add New Plugin page and activate it.

A new menu option is added.

There are 2 settings:

Enable the support features – this turns the feature on and off.

Number of email checks to capture – this limits the number of Postie sessions that will be captured.

Collect the logs

Typically you would check the enable checkbox and set the number to 1 and click save. Setting it to higher that 1 is fine otherwise you will have to come back and set the number for each capture.

Now make sure you have sent a sample email.

Switch back to the main Postie screen and click debug. Although it will still capture the session if initiated via WP-Cron (the normal way).

Once the session is captured all the relevant details will be put in a zip file and saved in your media library. The name will be something like “postie debug log 2017-11-10 10:40:12

Once you’ve generated the file sent it to and reference the support thread.

If the addon is enabled and number of checks value is greater than 0 you will see the following banner at the top of the page to remind you that logs are being collected.
