  2. Hi scraptw,

    We've gotten a few reports of this happening with other users as well. We're working together with the team at Posterous to get this fixed.

    Unfortunately we don't have an ETA just yet, but we hope to get this solved soon. We'll update this thread once it's fixed and you'll have to a fresh export/import at that time.

  3. Posterous has let us know that this issue should now be fixed. You'll need to re-download your Posterous export file and try the import again.

    Just let us know if you'd like us to empty out your site before you do. This will delete all pages, posts, comments, images and other uploaded files, as well as categories and tags. It's not reversible.

    Otherwise, you can empty your site manually.

    Please let us know if you need any help.
