rough draft of "How to post by email"--revised 11/12/03

This can probably be torn apart and improved dramatically, but it's somewhere to start. If someone has already written something better, we can use that instead.

Q: How do I post to my LiveJournal using email?

A: First, go to http://www.livejournal.com/manage/emailpost.bml to set at least one allowed sender address and create a PIN.

You will now be able to post by sending email to exampleusername@post.livejournal.com with the PIN in the subject or the body of the message, or exampleusername+PIN@post.livejournal.com. Replace "exampleusername" with your username, and "PIN" with your PIN. For detailed instructions, please see http://www.livejournal.com/manage/emailpost.bml?mode=help.

Edit/first revision, per gooner's suggestion, and distinguishing between audio and text posts from a telephone:

Q: How do I post to my LiveJournal by email or phone?

A: To post by email, first go to http://www.livejournal.com/manage/emailpost.bml to set at least one allowed sender address and create a PIN.

You will now be able to post by sending email to exampleusername@post.livejournal.com with the PIN in the subject or the body of the message, or exampleusername+PIN@post.livejournal.com. Replace "exampleusername" with your username, and "PIN" with your PIN. For detailed instructions, please see http://www.livejournal.com/manage/emailpost.bml?mode=help.

To post by phone, first go to http://www.livejournal.com/manage/phonepost.bml to authorize a posting phone number and create a PIN.

You will now be able to post by calling one of the designated phone numbers, listed at http://www.livejournal.com/phonepost/numbers.bml. The system will record your message and create a new journal entry containing an audio file.

If your phone has email capability, you can also use it to post text entries by email, using the post-by-email interface and instructions.
