How do I post to Tumblr from email?

My login/account screen doesn't have the "Goodies" button at the top as shown in this help page for Tumblr:

To publish to your tumblr you can send an email to a private email address which can be found out by following these steps:

How do I find my email address for mobile + email publishing?

  1. Click your blog's name at the top of your Dashboard or under the list icon at the top right.

  2. Click "Blog settings" on the right side of the page.

  3. You’ll find your private email address in the “Post by Email” section. (You can always reset this if you’re having issues publishing.)

The settings page has a URL looking like http://www.tumblr.com/blog/<name>/settings.

More information on post by email can be found in the tumblr help.

Seems that this is no longer located on the Goodies page. Any idea where it went? – hairboat May 10 '12 at 14:20

Awesome, I've been wondering where it disappeared to. Thank you! – hairboat May 10 '12 at 15:56
For what it's worth, I couldn't find it through the menus, but this direct link: tumblr.com/settings/blog worked for me. – ShreevatsaR Mar 10 at 18:31
