Use Email for Blogging

Just trying whether the email to Blogger posting really works.  This is my first time to post using this method.  Hopefully with this, I don't need to login to Blogger every now and then just to post.  

The Mail-to-Blogger feature is a very useful Blogger feature as it turns any email account into a blog-posting application. You could do this by going into Settings and then choose Email.  

ou then provide the Mail-to-Blogger address which you will use to send posts via email to your blog.  Note that this email address must be kept secret, otherwise, anyone who gets to know your email-blog settings will be able to post to your blog.  Choose the option whether you prefer your email posts to publish automatically.   If this option is not checked, then your posts will be saved as draft and needs to be manually publish after you have login to your Blogger account.

One final note, some email programs would append text at the bottom of your message; so to avoid the additional text to get posted, put a posting delimiter #end at the end of your post.

Ok, time to check whether this thing works... (I've added 1234 after the mail posting delimiter).
