    Hi guys,

    I'm working on a script and am running into a roadblock on how to post via email.

    this isnt a programation problem. So the program, sends mail with the attached picture to it and the hotmail account, recieves it. Wordpress says at the writing section: "configure an email with pop3 support all emails receved there will be posted so keep safe this." For some reason, either hotmail is not releasing the mails via pop3 or wordpress isnt opening account, the mails receved are not posted.

    Any ideas on what I'm missing?

    Also, what is the best email service to use for this? A high SMTP limit per hour would be awesome..... :D



    If it helps, I'm coding a program that will scrape from certain sites and autopost it to the blog (100-300 posts per blog). I'm using Visual Studios 2008 and am having trouble getting the mailing feature to work. If you have any ideas on how to do this through Visual Basic, that'd be great as well!
