IDEA Featured Image Not Created from By Email Post or WP App Post

We are looking for a simple way for our editors to send a story with some copy and one image to post to our website. The post is working but the image is not being picked up as a Featured Image. This is true for both the post by email function of JetPack and the WP App. The post is there, the image is there but the Featured Image does not update. The Featured Image does update if I open the post and re-save it in the wp-admin page.

Is there no way for the Featured Image to automatically update unless the post is opened and saved in wp-admin? We would like it to sweep through the posts page and find missing Featured Images and update them automatically. I suspect I am missing a setting somewhere to accomplish this.

Hello.

This only works when saving/creating a post in the admin panel. We have not tested this for the Wordpress app and publishing via email.
This is a good suggestion, we will implement it in future versions
