Post via e-mail's Category: allow specification from inside the mail too

Description

On wp-admin/options-writing.php we see Post via e-mail Default Mail Category.
Well OK, but there should also be a way to specify the category right
there in the mail. A magic keyword or something: ###Category: Nurds###,
[[Category:Nurds]] or something.

By the way, don't you want to say "Default posting category" instead of "Default mail category"?

So we see the need...

  • Keywords needs-patch removed
  • Milestone Future Release deleted
  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

With the post by email core plugin ramping up, and the previous suggestion to leave this plugin territory. I am giving it a -1 and closing as wontfix.
