Email PDF to Kindle

Hi, this is my first message here, so bare with me =)

I just got my Kindle 3G last week and started using calibre to manage all my ebook as well as some articles for my kindle. With the lovely 3G and Wifi, I don't usually connect my kindle to the computer and I simply use email to transfer my documents. The thing is sometimes I would like to email articles in its original format (ie. PDF) rather than converting it first into mobi, which mess up with the page layout. I see the function doing so if I have my kindle connected to the computer, but not for email. Did I simply miss the feature somewhere or I can fine tune calibre to email pdf? Thanks!

Perfect! Just gave it try. It allows me to send PDF if it is the only version available. If I have converted it before (ie. mobi), it would send mobi without asking. It makes sense cuz I am not going to keep the mobi around if it does not look right. Thanks!
