calibre 0.5.3 supports emailing books to the Kindle

Hi all,

I finally got around to implementing the long promised email support in calibre. As of 0.5.3 you can click a button to mail books to your kindle and have calibre automatically mail downloaded news to it as well. The email support is not kindle specific, so you can use it to email yourself books as attachments and access them on any device that lets you read email and has an ebook viewer.

To set it up, start the preferences, go to "Email delivery", and type in a From email address (all emails sent by calibre will appear to come from this email address). Then just add as many To email address as you want and calibre will mail books to all of them. Once that's done, click the little arrow next to the Send to device button to actually email a book.

calibre will normally try to send mail to the destination address directly from the computer it is running on, but if this doesn't work (because the destination email service only accepts mail from "well known" mail servers), you can also have calibre use your mail server to send the mails.

Of course all these features are extremely beta, so YMMV.

Can you share your settings? Maybe I'm not setting it up properly (I've tried on 2 different computers).

I entered my [kindlename]@kindle.com as email address, and just MOBI under formats. Have "Auto send" checked. "Send email from" is one of my standard email addresses, registered at Amazon's "manage your kindle" page as one which can be used to send books to the Kindle.

I'm not using any of the mail server options.

Hmm... I'm not very happy about the python2.6 upgrade. calibre won't install anymore. Now I'm trying to get install python 2.6 locally on my system, but this is a hack, I'm not sure it'll work.

Was the upgrade to python-2.6 that important?? Its very new.

How does this work? It doesn't require you to be running an SMTP server on local host does it?

Is there a place to put your username and password in? Does gmail allow for SMTP outgoing mail?

@daffy4u and Nate the great

Can one or both of you run the following command in a terminal


Code:
calibre-smtp from@whatever.com to@somethingelse.com "test email"
Replace from@... with your from address

and to@ with your to address
