How to Email Files Into Your Kindle

One of the basic features of the Amazon Kindle device is the ability to import files via email. Most people probably see and ignore this ability when they first get their Kindle.

If you need a refresher on the official instructions, visit https://www.amazon.com/gp/sendtokindle/email.

Basically, you can email many kinds of files to your Kindle. Once you log into your Amazon accounts, you can browse to your Kindle and find the "Send-to-Kindle" email address for your specific device.

Supported File Types include:

  • Microsoft Word (.DOC, .DOCX)
  • HTML (.HTML, .HTM)
  • RTF (.RTF)
  • JPEG (.JPEG, .JPG)
  • Kindle Format (.MOBI, .AZW)
  • GIF (.GIF)
  • PNG (.PNG)
  • BMP (.BMP)
  • PDF (.PDF)

Note: If you send a PDF and wish to convert it to Kindle format, use the subject line "convert" to automatically enable conversion. This will allow you to use variable font sizes, annotations, and Whispersync.

You must send emails from the email address associated with your account and device.
