Posterous Import Problems

  1. I can seem to get my Posterous blog imprted to my new WordPress blog. I have followed the instructions, but it keeps saying the file is not an xml file. Help please!

    The blog I need help with is atlantaphotoblog.wordpress.com.

  2. You cannot upload a .zip file. It must be an xml file.
