I've set up a e-mail to blog interface using PostMan plugin. It wasn't completely simple - the script has bugs, I had trouble getting cron do what I want, things like that, but now the system works and I'll just have to fix one bug to make it work even better.

Is it of any real use, is another thing. I think situations where I have SSH connection but no web connection are rare, but in the other hand, writing with Mozilla Mail is more comfortable than writing with Mozilla browser...

The command looks like this:

/usr/bin/lynx -dump "url/to/action.php?action=plugin&name=PostMan" > /dev/null

The key to success is the quotes, because otherwise the &-sign will cause trouble.
