We've already setted up the Mail2Mir interface for posting.
Remember to send your messages to uk-newswire at indymedia.org !!!!
Griselda has written this HOW-TO use the mail2mir interface, Enjoy!!!
PS, there's some weird problem with www.indymedia.org.uk. It returns
"thanks for posting", you'll see your article in some minutes but it
doesn't appear at all.
Is there any kind of "content-detention" at this moment or newswire is
working as usual?
Maybe the address got blocked? planet tech, I'm in scotland, just pick
me around the Indyplace :D
HOW TO Publish Email, SMS and MMS to Indymedia UK's Newswire
We have already setted up a gateway that allows publish into UK
Indymedia's newswire from your email or your mobile phone, including
text and pictures.
This means that you can prepare your articles without internet
connection, and save them like emails. Then when you'd have internet
connection you can publish it directly to the newswire only sending the
emails to a concrete email adress. It's also possible to publish
directly reports and pictures from the streets to the newswire, sending
an email from your mobile phone, ( email, SMS or a MMS), to the same
concrete email gateway.
The adress of the gateway (Mail2Mir) is this one:
uk-newswire at indymedia.org
There are some rules and options to set in order to publish your
articles in a formatted way:
The title: by default the title would be the same as the subject of your
email. So don't forget the Subject!
First paragraph: this will be the “brief” or “digest” of the article.
Second paragraph (after pressing 2 times the “return” key): Body of the
message. Here you can write your article.
Pictures: if you want to attach pictures (up to 5 in each message) they
will be published by defalut between the brief and the body of the message.
Author: the default author will be the author specified in the email
account of the sender/writer. If you want to change the author appearing
on the published email, you can write a line like this:
You can also use other special definers:
@@title what you want write as a title
@@media1 Title of the first attachmen
@@media2 Title of the second....
@@email my at email.here
@@phone the number you want
@@adress for any adress
@@brief Put here all your brief, remember to write only in one line
@@body Put here all your message
This @@...lines can be writed somewhere in your email, The only
requirement is to write each one you want to use in one and different
line. The “@@” lines OVERRIDE the default settings of your message and
are cool in order to hide your phone number!
Important for MMS users: if you are sending an MMS from your mobile
phone, is it possible that your mobile company add pictures and other
stuff from their own, like advertisments and sheet like that. We've
tested with Vodafone UK MMS, and now it would be possible to avoid that
commercial pictures to be published. But for all the other mobile phone
companies we didn't have time enough to test it yet. So we're afraid
that this sheet is gonna appear into the published article. In this
cases, please send to us the url in order to make possible to test how
the other mobile phone companies are ennoying us, and to try to avoid
them for other further occasions.
