I have yet to try this feature. I've read up on it too and so far, what I've gathered is you can use it on either the free WP or a self-hosted WP. You need to set up an email account that will be used solely for this purpose and for security reasons, it is best that it is an email address that only you know. They emphasize the need for severe discretion because one everything's been set up, all emails received by WP from the email address you set up will be posted on your site.
Like I said, I haven't tried it yet but want to. Useful instructions are available in the Wordpress Codex
. I'll see if I can give it a go later in the week and let you know. :)
