BitMessage (bitmessage.org) is a peer-to-peer email system kind of based on BitTorrent. By itself, this software and its' messages are not compatible with email, so in order to send an email to a bitmessage address, a Gateway service has been created here: https://bitmessage.ch

The gateway works by simply allowing anyone to send an email to {bitmessage-address}@bitmessage.ch

This is a less secure way of using bitmessage of course, but I don't see any other way of setting wordpress up to natively use bitmessage.

So my question is: How exactly do I change out the email address field of wordpress 3.9.1 to a Bitmessage address field, & what exactly do I need to change in which files to ensure that "@bitmessage.ch" is attached to the end of the bitmessage address at any & all email send requests?

Thanks in advance! SYG

  • I'm sorry, I'm not very familiar with wordpress internal code and just barely know enough PHP to try to attempt making the changes you guys point out. I'm really asking for help on locating the affected code. For instance, where inside the wp-mail.php file would changes need to be made? Seemed overwhelming when I opened it up. :( – user52847 Jun 7 '14 at 3:23
  • So just to be clear, whenever WP tries to send mail to a user, you just need to swap user@bitmessage.org for user@bitmessage.ch? – TheDeadMedic Jun 7 '14 at 10:29
  • No, a BM username has no @ sign in it... It looks like this: BM-3908ru9084ur09qu098udf0 Therefore, I want users to enter just BM-3908ru9084ur09qu098udf0 while in the background a @bitmessage.ch is added to that making it BM-3908ru9084ur09qu098udf0@bitmessage.ch – user52847 Jun 14 '14 at 22:49
