Depending on the Kindle’s model and software version.
First, if you own an Amazon Kindle device, you can transfer files directly to the device by connecting it to your computer via USB cable. If you own a Kindle device that is not compatible with this cable, or you own a Kindle app on another device, such as an iPad, you can transfer files by email.
If you choose this method, you will need to use Amazon’s free personal document email service. With this service, you can send any compatible document file–such as. PDF,. MOBI, and. AZW–directly to your Kindle as an email attachment.
To use the service, go to Amazon’s Manage Your Content and Devices page and locate the Kindle app or device on which you wish to send the file. Find the “Email Your Documents” option and then follow the instructions there to enter your Kindle email address in the “To” field and attach your file.
Amazon may also require you to enter your Amazon account password, so ensure you have that information handy.
As a third option, you can use a third-party cloud service such as Google Drive, Dropbox, or Microsoft OneDrive to transfer files to your Kindle. These services typically make transferring files easier, as you can connect your account to your Kindle and start transferring files without having to use the Amazon personal document email service.
No matter which method you chose to transfer and send files to your Kindle, be sure to check that the file type is compatible with the device or app before attempting to transfer the file.

Can I Send to Kindle from any email?
No, you cannot send to Kindle from any email address. The email address from which you can send documents and books to your Amazon Kindle e-reader or Kindle app for smartphones and tablets must be registered with Amazon.
The email addresses will have the domain ending @kindle. com, @free. kindle. com, or @amazon. com. Additionally, content can be sent to your Kindle device or app by using Amazon’s Send to Kindle service which requires an account.

Can I email PDF files to my Kindle?

This address can be found in the “Settings” page of your Kindle device or in the “Manage Your Kindle” page of your Amazon account. You can then email a PDF document to the address associated with your Kindle, and the document will appear in the “Docs” folder of your Kindle.
If the PDF is a text-based document, it will be automatically converted to an Amazon supported format and will appear in the “Books” folder of your Kindle. If the PDF document contains images and text, then it will remain in the PDF format and will be accessible in the “Docs” folder.
How do I add a PDF to my Kindle app?
Adding a PDF to your Kindle app is relatively straightforward. First, make sure that your file is in an acceptable format, such as. mobi. If it is not, you can use a file converter to change it to a supported format.

Select where you want to find your PDF file, such as from your device’s file storage, your personal Cloud account, or your favorite content provider. Find the PDF file that you want to upload and select it.
The file will begin to upload to your device and the Kindle app.
Once the PDF has finished uploading, the file will appear in your library on the Home page of your Kindle app. You can select it to read the PDF or manage the file’s settings by selecting the “Actions” icon next to the file name.
From there, you can move it to a collection, share it with a friend, or delete it.
What email do I use for Kindle?
The email address you use for your Kindle depends on which type of Kindle device you have. If you have a Kindle eReader, you will use the email address associated with your Amazon account. If you have a Fire tablet, you will need to use the email address associated with the Amazon account you used to register the device.
Additionally, if you have a Fire tablet and also have a registered Kindle eReader, you may need to use different email addresses when setting up your device. To check which email address is associated with your device, access the Settings on the device and look for the ‘Device Info’ section.
This will tell you which Amazon account is associated with the device, and the email address for that Amazon account will be the one you use for your Kindle device.
What happens when you send something to your Kindle email?
When you send something to your Kindle email, the item you sent will be delivered directly to your device as long as it is compatible. Your Kindle should be registered to the same Amazon account that is associated with your Kindle email address.

Depending on the file type, you may then need to use a compatible app to open the file such as Amazon Kindle, Kindle Cloud Reader, or an app that works with the document type you send.
To receive PDF documents, you must have a Kindle device with a screen size of 7 inches or larger or with a Fire HDX tablet.
How many books can I email to Kindle?
It depends on what type of Kindle you have, as well as your specific email provider. Generally, most Kindle devices support the sending of multiple books via email.

If you have a second-generation Kindle device, you can receive up to 25 attachments at one time, each up to 50 MB in size. For the newest 8th-generation Kindle devices, the limit is 25 attachments of 50 MB or less.
