An Indian Civilizational Perspective

– How to blog on Drupal through email?

The steps for the accomplishing this are as follows:
1. You need two modules for this: Listhandler and Mailhandler
2. First of all create two mailboxes using the mail tool provided by your host.
3. Start with MAILHANDLER.

MAILHANDLER
a. Enter both "Email address" and "Second Email address"
b. Use POP Mailbox
c. Mailbox port is 110 an Mailbox domain is the domain of your site.
d. Mailbox username and password = put in your username and password for the main mailbox

4. Next, go to LISTHANDLER

a. Admin address is the Main Email address that you put in your Mailhandler settings
b. Account status should be active
c. The secondary email will automatically come under "Mailing List"

Save the Listhandler settings.

Now you can send in your emails to the main email you created in Mailhandler. 

The post will appear when the cron job runs.  You can also do it yourself by click on the Retrieve link in the Mailhandler next to the main mailbox you have created.

Needless to say, this blog post comes through mail.
