Post by Email is a way of publishing posts on your blog using your email. Any email client can be used to send the email, allowing you to publish quickly and easily from devices such as cell phones if you don’t have the WordPress mobile app installed.
Your email can be plain text or formatted. As much formatting as possible will be retained, although the Post by Email system will strip unnecessary HTML tags so that your email is displayed correctly. In particular, italic and bold formatting will work, while colors and font changes will not.
Note that you will need to use an email client that supports rich text or HTML formatting in order to make use of this feature. Most website based clients (Hotmail, Gmail) do support this, as do most desktop clients (Outlook, Mail). You may need to switch your client into rich text or formatted mode.
Image attachments will be included in your published post as follows:
-Single images will be displayed inline (a single image is defined as an image without an image immediately following it).
-Multiple images will be displayed as a gallery.
-Multiple galleries and single images are allowed in the same post. Note that using the shortcode will disable all galleries.
