Alternative extension to Powermail4

Post by bill_or » Wed Nov 28, 2018 6:02 pm

I've been using Powermail4 to automatically convert an email from a specific user sent to a specific email address into a Joomla article that is automatically published. You can see the result on the home page of my village website www.fairlight.org.uk - under the heading 'Village & Community News and Events from the Mailing List'

The Powermail4 extension is no longer supported and their website is dead.

Please can anyone suggest an alternative extension? All I want to do is to automatically publish emailed news items (I have no control over the content of these news items).
Thanks
Bill
P.S. Powermail4 is still working at present but at some point I suspect it will cease being compatible with Joomla releases and I'd rather fix it now before it breaks!!

Something like this perhaps: https://extensions.joomla.org/extension/post-by-email/ - but last JED listing shows last update was 2015 so it looks like development has stalled on this as well, and it doesn't use the Joomla Auto-update.

Hi - yes I saw this one but as you say it looks almost as dodgy as Powermail!

I haven't seen any others in the JED, that was the first I found doing a Google search.

Thanks - I think I'll just leave this question open in case someone finds one!

I too am interested in buying or renewing my subscription to a component that allows named users to submit articles directly by email. I have owned PowerMail4Joomla and Blogsten in the past but it appears Stan is gone from the business and the sites are unattended.

If others wish to have a similar utility I am willing to have it created.
