    Hello,
    I have a gmail account that gets tons of mail and has tons archived. I want to post all of it both what is archived and anything that comes in to a wp blog. I was trying to do this using postie but I was getting an error saying an unauthorized user was trying to post.
    I realize what I want to do is silly bordering on insane but can we get passed that and focus on a way to get it done?

    I signed up much earlie today and still waiting on activation details. I can only imagine what it will be like for them to answer a support ticket. I already hate this company.

    I have read all of those.. can't get it going. This is driving me nuts. It should not be this hard to do what I want to do.

    I actually got postie working. I think the firewall on my vps was stopping it somehow. I have it working now importing 25 emails at a time. If I try to do more than that it puts lag on my vps. I am up to like 3,700 posts now. Then I`ll go through the posts and make sure there is nothing I shouldn't have there before I let the SE at it. I doubt any of my emails will cause a page one position one ranking that will make me adsense millions but.. F it why not try it.

    Do you happen to know a plugin that will redirect external links to the homepage or another page?
