How to Post to a Tumblr Blog from an Email

If you want to publish something to your tumblelog but you don't have Tumblr immediately available to you, have no fear! You can create Tumblr posts simply by emailing the text, image, or audio to the automated Tumblr email created for your account. To learn how to access this email, read on!
  1. 1
    Log in to Tumblr using the email and password associated with your account. You should be taken to the dashboard, where you'll need to click Gear like icon at the top of the page which is the tumblr setting.
  2. 2
    Select the title of your blog from the sidebar on the left.
  3. 3
    Scroll down to where it says "Post by Email". You should see an email address, consisting of random letters and numbers and ending with "". If you don't like this particular email you can hit the "Reset" button, but keep in mind that you're probably not going to get anything too coherent.
  4. 4
    Test the feature by sending a post to your Tumblr email. If it shows up on your blog, you know it works; if not, try resetting.
  5. 5
    Check your blog to ensure the email system works.
