How do I get a file onto my Kindle?


If you are using a Kindle device, and you have a file that you want to be included in your Kindle content, then one of the easiest ways to make that file available is to email it to your own email address. Amazon will then automatically import the file into your Kindle content. 

If you are using a Kindle reader application, right click on the file and select open with Kindle app.


A friend emailed a file to my address but the file did not appear in my Kindle content. What happened to it?


This could be because the email account used to send the file is not authorised to send files to your Kindle account.
When you first register for  Kindle account with Amazon, only that email address is authorised to send content to your address.  
You can authorise more email addresses (more of your own email accounts, or those of your friends) by going to the Amazon 'Manage my Kindle page'

Direct links are as follows:
Manage My Kindle (Amazon US)
Manage My Kindle (Amazon UK)

Once you have logged in to Manage My Kindle, 

  1. Click on 'Personal Document Settings' on the left hand column.
  2. Look at the bottom of the page where it says, 'Approved Personal Document Email-List'. 
  3. Click Add a new approved email address
  4. Enter the email address that you want to be able to send files to your Kindle account from.
