Post-via-email is almost done.
The current implementation works like this:
- Setup :
Specify a POP3 email address for the script to check, and a prefix for the subject of the emails (so that the script doesn't check every email in the mailbox). Default prefix is "blog:"
Set up a cronjob to run the script every 5 minutes or so.
- Usage :
Send an email to the above specified address.
The subject must be the prefix plus the title of the post, e.g. "blog:the title of my post".
In the message body, type "login:password" on the first line then go to the next line and start typing your post. For example if your login is "me" and your password is "123", and you want to say "I just ate an apple, woohoo!", type this:
I just ate an apple, woohoo!
There will soon be an open beta test of this feature, for the 0.6 testdrive
blog (hint: go and register there for testing). I'll announce it when it's ready.

Title and category work just like they do when using the blogger API.

I'm not big on sending my password over the Internet in clear text e-mail. Is there a way to create a second account that can only make posts to your primary account? If so, then that'd be cool. That way if your password is compromised, then they can only make posts and delete things.

You could create a second or third account, with only level 1 (post and edit/delete own posts), make its profile identical to your main account's profile, and then use it for email.

I see this as being -very- handy to work in conjunction with a tool like Dead Man's Switch (http://www.arsware.org), for those morbidly minded out there, who couldn't stand to have readers not know you've died...

Hey, I just got comment spam from the same guy (Marco).
He's targeting us via Google (I used his query to find you).
There is a simple solution to block this putz you can apply to your .htaccess file over at Eliot Landrum's blog:
