The feature's great Brad, so glad you got it implemented! Can't wait to try it on my phone.

I love the fact you can post to a community as well.

Thanks.

The posting pictures from camera phones interests me, and I hope to hear details of attachment support soon. Keep up the good work.

Wow.

And I've only had a procmail/perl script doing this for every user on my webserver for the last two years.

Keep up the good work, guys.

It sounds very handy, thanks. But I tried it, a couple of hours ago, and the post still does not appear in my journal. I have reloaded, logged off, re-started the computer, to no avail. Please tell me that AOL isn't block this feature too.

agreed with the others, I think this is what the doctor ordered, especially for those of us like myself who can't surf at work, but can e-mail. way to strengthen the addiction.

Doesn't work for me!

I can't use the e-mail posting feature, and I have a paid account. I get my message back, with the following message:

Diagnostic-Code: X-Postfix; can't create user output file. Command output:
procmail: Couldn't chdir to "/home/lj/mail"

Re: Doesn't work for me!

Ditto.

The Postfix program

<lj@livejournal.com>: can't create user output file. Command output: procmail:
Couldn't chdir to "/home/lj/mail"

I got that with one e-mail account and the other never showed up in my journal or came back with an error.

I've set both e-mail accounts up through the configuration page and then followed the instructions on how to send using my PIN. Hrm. Very cool feature, maybe I should wait a bit and see if the kinks work themselves out while I sleep.

Is this new feature the reason comments are coming days late and out of order from when they were posted?
It's been quite aggravating. 8-/

This is a great idea!! So props to lj.
However, on my cell phone (samsung,sprint) I don't have a "+" character. Is there anything I can substitute, for it?
