<h1>Post via Email</h1>
<p>You can post from an email client! To set this up go to your &quot;Writing&quot; options screen and fill in the connection details for your secret POP3 account. Then you need to set up <code>wp-mail.php</code> to execute periodically to check the mailbox for new posts. You can do it with Cron-jobs, or if your host doesn't support it you can look into the various website-monitoring services, and make them check your <code>wp-mail.php</code> URL. </p>
<p> Posting is easy: Any email sent to the address you specify will be posted, with the subject as the title. It is best to keep the address dicrete. The script will <i>delete</i> emails that are successfully posted. </p>

-<p>You may allow or disallow user registration in your <a href="wp-admin/options-general.php">General options</a>. If &quot;new users can blog&quot; is disabled you must first raise the level of a newly registered user to allow them to post. Click the plus sign next to their name on the <a href="wp-admin/users.php">Users</a> page. </p>
-<h2>User Levels</h2>
-<ul>
- <li>0 - New User </li>
- <li>1 - User can post, edit, and delete their own posts.</li>
- <li>5+ - Admin; can post, edit, delete other people's posts, and change the options.</li>
- <li>Any user whose level is higher than 1, can edit and delete the posts and change the level of lower users. Example: a level 2 user is not an admin, but can edit the posts of level 1 users, and up the level of a new user from 0 to 1.</li>
