Doesn't seem to be working. It's the same E-mail as the amazon account except @Kindle.com right?
I've had one e-mail returned to me and one is sending but not showing up on my Kindle. I'm attaching pdf document but also some mobi ones. Can I not attach more than one document at a time? Does it take a long time?

It will only be the same e-mail user name as the one for your Amazon account if you went in and set it that way. Otherwise, they may have given it a different on (usually your first name followed by a number). You can check the e-mail adress in "manage Your Kindle"

Go into your Amazon account and double check the name. Mine was/is not the same as the name on my account.

Make sure you have included your email address in the list of authorized addresses (addresses who can send mail to your Kindle).

Make sure the Whispernet is turned on when you send the mail. Mail doesn't go into a queue it just disappears if the Whispernet is off.

You can send multiple attachments on one mail. It only takes a few seconds.

Report back, please.

The only time I tried it, I got a messsage on my Amazon Kindle page saying the email had no data files.  I just sent myself a "hi" mesage and never got it.

What Leslie said.

To check the email address, go to the Kindle Store, then Manage Your Kindle (you'll have to log in) and verify the email designated.  For example, mine is [email protected] changed it, can't remember what the automatically generated email was.

When you send something, try one thing at a time--I don't know if it matters.  You want to have the Whispernet on, everything I've sent has shown up fairly quickly.  There are many reports that if you don't have the Whispernet on when the email is sent to your Kindle, it disappears into the ether.

Hope this helps!

Hmm, the e-mail is correct and my e-mail adress is on the authorized list and Whispernet is on.
Hmm, I also keep clicking on "Check for new items" but nothing is showing up. Can the e-mail convert PDFs?
This is annoying :(

If it is a complex PDF it may very well fail. I've had that happen. PDF support is experimental. It is not a fully supported format.

Dissapears completely or should I get an e-mail back saying it didn't send? Also, do I still get charged if it dissapears?

My whispernet is on but it has some connection problems at my place. It has two bars but when I press check for new items it says wireless connecting on the bottom left.

No one that I have heard of has ever been charged the 10 cents, so don't worry about that.

One time I got an email saying the conversion failed.

Your other option is to download Mobipocket Creator and convert the file yourself.

Ah, it worked for one mobi formatted book I sent, yay though I could've just connected my Kindle. Maybe the PDFs I'm sending are too complicated.

That's what it looks like I have to do.

My experience has been that the MobiCreator does a better job on PDF's than sending it directly as a PDF attachment by e-mail.  If you still want to send it via Whispernet, you can do so after it's converted.

Try just sending one file on the email.

I was looking at that last night and it said that there will be no charge until a $3.00 balance is built up. You have to send up to 30 files before they charge you the first time.

That worked with a mobi file but not with a pdf. I downloaded Mobi Creator, now I just need to figure out how to use it.

I send 2 items to my Kindle, but those where already in correct format from mobile reference. They got there instantly. I am just amazed at how fast it is. I bought a book and literally counted the seconds and I couldn't even count to 6-7 and it was downloaded.

I do have 5 bars where I am at. I wonder if you have low connectivity if that can affect the conversion process.

Remember that you are sending an attachment (like a Word doc). It won't take the actual email (at least it won't on mine).

I have sent dozens of files to my Kindle and have never been charged 10 cents or $3.00 or anything else. And I have never heard of anyone else being charged, either.
