    Hi Guys,

    I'm trying to post via email in my fan page but I can not figure out how to get the caption:

    To upload a photo, email the photo to this address and include a caption in the email subject line

    Any of you can help with this?

    Never tried to update the fan page via gmail
    Give it a try @[tagcode:0] and send it to m.facebook.com since tag codes still works with m.facebook.com and not working with facebook.com.

    You can, add picture as attachment and write caption and send! I use it for long time, if you know php, download phpmailer and add make it post random pictures from folder on your server using cron job. My few pages are 100% on autopilot.

    That would be great if I can figure out about the captions because right now I send emails with the attachements and are not been publish in the fan page. Do I need to configure anything in the fan page to be able to post the pictures via email?

    ok, send the e.mail but don't place the picture as attachment, place it as picture on the e.mail content, and on subject, write the caption you want, that's it, there are time limitations and amount of fanpages you can send the posts to, if i remember correctly i usually sent to just one fanpage and if i wanted to send to other pages same post, i used the hidden copy line

    If I send a email with just test works just fine. The problem is when I send a picture on the email.
