I have a scenario where we would like to post to our blog via email. However, it needs to be to a custom post type. I've done a bit of research but haven't found any examples or ideas on how to do this.

Any help would be appreciated.


When a post is submitted by email and published WordPress Runs an action hook named 'publish_phone' so you can get the post there and change its type like this:

function custom_type_by_mail($post_id){
    $p = get_post($post_id,'ARRAY_A');
    $p['post_type'] = "YOUR_CUSTOM_TYPE_NAME_HERE";

Probably not the smartest way but it does work and its simple.
