    I’ve helped my wife go through the download process from Posterous. I use your importer and hit the file you specified. We keep getting the error message that the xml file is NOT an xml file. Can’t get past that.

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

    Yes, this is a very frustrating issue for a lot of people trying to come to wordpress.com from posterous. One solution is using a different browser like Chrome of Firefox (http://browsehappy.com) for some reason this seems to work. If you don’t want to do that, or it doesn’t work, staff will be able to import it from their end, it will just take a while for them to get around to it.

    This thread will be tagged for their attention, so let us know if you get it work on a different browser!

    Thanks for the suggestion. Just used Chrome, and it uploaded the file. Hopefully we don’t run into another snafu!
