Hi,

I'm sure it's probably been asked already, but I can't seem to be able to check my gmail account on my Kindle...no matter what I do.  I can't check my hotmail either, but I expected that...and my Yahoo! (yes, I have a lot of email addresses) is the only one that works.  If you can check Google stuff on the Kindle, I'm sure checking Gmail won't be that different.  So can anyone help me?  I just got my Kindle a few weeks ago (been testing it out during a trip), so everything is still a bit new to me.

Thanks.

Tris :p

Hi quickfics! I tried the http://m.gmail.com, but just like Patrizia it didn't work for me...at all. I just get an error message saying my actions or the website was invalid.

Thanks for the input!

(Bad word.) To be honest, it's been a while since I used the Kindle to access Gmail. Google may be playing Funky Chicken with the Javascript again.

Arts&History Fan posted this in the FAQ thread earlier today:

I've used my gmail account but last night I remembered while almost asleep that I had not checked a yahoo account that i reserve for special questions, so I put my Kindle into Basic Web mode and went to http://yahoo.com/m (which brings up the mobile-formatted features) and chose 'mail' and then I input my user ID and password (which is remembered until a reset). I found an answer waiting there and then I replied to it.

Since the keyboard is hardly ideal for a longer email, my email was only 3 sentences, but it did what I needed and I didn't have to get up and go out to turn on the computer in another room etc. It's like a little magic gadget sometimes.

The Yahoo mail worked much better than the gmail has, on my Kindle, in that it responds faster and doesn't balk when sending, which the gmail has, on occasion.

Credit to A&HF for this tip!

I guess I will just have to make due with my Yahoo! mail (oh well).  I don't use my Gmail that much anyway...

Thanks for trying to help Sir Sterndale Bennett!

Got it.

For Google (gmail) the correct address is m.gmail.com. For gmail, you need to have Javascript enabled in your Kindle browser settings. From the browser, use the scrollwheel to click Menu -> Settings - Javascript (enable).

I have started a thread with web browsing tips, please check it out:
