Updating a blog by email and including images?

Travel Forums System Talk Updating a blog by email and including images?

1. Posted by InvictaMoto (Budding Member 32 posts) 4w Star this if you like it!

I use Gmail all the time and have sent a few test emails to my blog and lately with a JPG image attached and then as "inline". On both occasions the image doesn't turn up at all.

I checked the ? in settings and it takes me to https://www.travellerspoint.com/moblogexplanation.html.

Sending from Gmail as "plain text mode" or not, the email simply never arrives.... Is there a size limit on the JPG? There is also no bounce back to Gmail to say that the email has been rejected.

Any ideas?

Update. The standard Gmail email arrived but the "plain text" is in the wind....

Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I've tested a couple of entries from Gmail and have the same issue. I'll have to step through the process and find where it's going wrong, but it's definitely an issue. Will keep you posted.

Is it just Gmail?

No, I don't think so. I tested from another email and found the same issue.

I tried with my Yahoo account and it wasn't working.

Could you try again now? The problem should be fixed.
