To be able to create new posts by e-mail, I installed the Postie Plugin.
You'll need to create a secret e-mail address that you can check via POP3 access. This e-mail address could be @yourdomain.com or via Yahoo or Gmail or whatever free e-mail you'd like.
YOU WILL ONLY USE THIS E-MAIL ADDRESS TO PUBLISH POSTS AND NOTHING ELSE!!!!
Whatever you e-mail this address will automatically publish to your blog. So don't give out the secret address to anyone!
The subject will be the blog title and the contents of the e-mail will be the post copy.
After you make the e-mail, find the instructions on how to check your e-mail via POP3 access from the e-mail provider. Enter the credentials into your settings page and then be sure to add your e-mail address (that you're sending from) to the approved e-mail list to publish new posts. Lastly, adjust additional settings like Default Category.
