We've added support for posting by email for forums (in and UBB Forum) and for blog entries (


If you enable the feature, your community members will be able to post new forum topics and/or blog entries directly via email.  Each forum has its own distinct email address to ensure that the topic is posted to the right are in the forums.  


You can also replace our default email addresses with your own custom/vanity email addresses.

If a user posts using Post By Email and the address they use is not registered on your site, we will register a new account for them (and they will be sent a community welcome email that includes a link to your terms of service, if you have set one), but any existing member and/or content moderation rules will still apply.


Such users can later add a password to their account, if they ever want to be able to sign into your site.

Also note that if you are enforcing an age limit on your site, POSTS BY EMAIL will not work (users will receive an error message), since you have indicated that you want to ensure that each member has been age-checked.  Thus, you should not enable this feature if you have an age-limit you are enforcing.


This feature is also supported on group and portfolio forums and groups, as well.
