Troubleshooting

What if I’m having trouble with email publishing?

A few tips:

  • Send posts directly to your mobile posting email address. You cannot email another email address and then forward the email from there.
  • Make sure the mobile posting email address is in the “To” field; it cannot go in the “CC” or “BCC” field.
  • Check for typos in the mobile posting email address. Try resetting your mobile posting email address on the Settings page.
