How to set the post-via-email feature on self-hosted wordpress blog

Do you have a self-hosted wordpress blog? Enjoy blogging right from your mobile phone? If you are a mobile blogger like me who blog from phone, then this wordpress feature is really important. It helps you create a blog posts more practically, only by typing an email to a secret email address that you have set in your wordpress settings, which is almost the same way as you set the post via email on blogger.

First, you need to create a dedicated email account. I recommend you to make it on gmail.com. Make sure that no one knows that address as it is the address to which you will send your blog post. The email can be like: 6l2ji8g@gmail.com. Use your own word. The more complicated, the better.

Next, login to your secret gmail account. Click Settings -> Forwarding and POP/IMAP -> tick the Enable POP for mail that arrives from now on and save. You are done.

Now go to your wordpress dashboard. Click Settings -> Writing. Scroll down and you will see a form in which you have to fill with your secret email account data. Do the following:

Now whenever you want to write a blog post, send an email to that address. The email title will be the post tiltle in your blog and the email body will be the content of your post. But before you can see the email posted in your wordpress blog, you must first access your wp-mail.php. Don't worry. It's easy. What you have to do is just type the following address in the address bar of your browser http://yourdomain.com/wp-mail.php

Change the yourdomain to your own domain address. Done.

Happy blogging, everyone!
