Thanks Pam
you do it differently for emails.
First, you dont use the Kindle email address, you use your own eg; Gmail
If you dont have one, you can create it here
https://accounts.google.com/SignUp
Doesn't have to be Gmail, can be any, just using that as an example.
Then you add the email address to the Kindle Email App.
To do that
Tap Apps.
Tap Email.
The Email app opens and displays a Start button the first time you open the app.
Tap the Start button.
A list of account types appears.
Tap Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail, AOL, or Other.
The dialog box appears.
Enter your username and password ***** the appropriate fields, and then tap Next.
A new screen appears, displaying two fields.
Enter the name that will appear on outgoing messages in the Display Name field and a name in the Account Name field to identify the account for yourself.
The Account Name is optional.
Tap the Send Mail from This Account by Default check box.
Of course, this only applies if you want to set this up as your default e-mail account.
Tap the View your Inbox button to go to the inbox for the account you just set up.
And then you get the emails there and can send emails from that account straight off the Kindle.
If you have any problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you
