I'm trying to create rules to automatically get emails into draft WordPress posts when they're marked up with a specific label or come from a specific address. In theory, that's quite simple, but the problem with Gmail rules in IFTTT is that is doesn't properly support HTML in emails so a lot of the body content is showing up as blank.

Sending an email to the trigger email address seems to work better for copying HTML content into the body of the WordPress post, but there's not an easy way to integrate the two.

Any suggestions of other tricks for automating email content, including HTML emails into WordPress draft posts without having to manually forward or copy and paste?

    Did you try to post by email to a wordpress blog recipe? – batpigandme Jun 18 '13 at 17:33
  • Yes, that's one of the options I've been playing with. It works better in terms of getting HTML content from the email into the post, but the problem I'm having is trying to automate how those emails are sent. What I'd like is a solution that automatically sends emails given a particular label, but when I do that it reverts from gmail which disables the html functionality. Maybe there's a workaround with setting up a rule in my email client? – Chris Jun 18 '13 at 20:37
  • So you want only emails with a certain word/tag in them to be posted as Wordpress drafts? Could you use email to email filtering and then post to Wordpress? – barrycarter Nov 15 '14 at 18:46
