I used the email function from Outlook to send a book to the cloud. I found a book, but I renamed it before sending it. The cover wasn't sent with the book. I'm not sure how all that works.

I ended up using Calibre as it seems to work better insofar as cover information goes. Plus, I can scan the database to see which books I want to send to device, particularly if they are in a series and I don't know which ones come first.
Sorry for the delay in answering - I missed the question.

Yes, when I send an e-book to the Kindle using the Windows program, I get the cover, also. What I do is put the book on my desktop from Calibre (using the "save single format to disk" line). On my desktop, I get a folder that contains a .jpg of the cover, the .mobi book and a .opf file (which I assume is Calibre doing something). I only sent the .mobi to the Kindle, but the picture is included.

I can only assume the picture goes with the book if it's in the metadata? Taking a guess, cause I don't know how it works.

Regardless, hope this helps.
