WordPress have a feature to add new post by email. That is the email body will become your post content. You can get that option on admin/setting/writing. Give the details of your secret mail.

Now the big Q?

  • why it’s not working?
  • Where is all the mail I sent?
  • I can see it in that secret mail in-box but why it’s not showing in the blog?
  • Did I put all the info correctly?
  • Yes I did. Then why my email posting not showing up?

To make the mail show on the post, u have to run a file. That is you have to go to a url for me that is http://localhost/blog/wp-mail.php for you it will be whatever)/(only if wp is not on home then the directory name)/wp-mail.php. You have to run this every time u want to make an email post to show up on your blog.
