Transfer Calibre converted file to Amazon via email
Can someone please help me...and be very specific in your instructions as I am new to this whole process with e-readers / converting files!
When I try to send my book in Calibre to my kindle account, I get an error message (see below at the end of this question). The process I am using to send it is as follows:
1. Highlight book
2. Click on Connect/share icon
3. Select start content server
4. then select email to firstname.lastname@example.org (I've also tried email@example.com and my personal email accounts)
Then I receive this error message:
ERROR: Failed to email books: Failed to email the following books:
(10060, 'A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond')
Traceback (most recent call last):

I can't help much with step 4, but you do need to configure correctly for sending by email first. A mail server and username/password are needed.

I regularly send html files to free.kindle.com; they have to be double-zipped. Dunno how this applies to a *.prc file, which I assume is what you're sending. Indeed, a *.prc file is what I get back from Amazon from my double-zipped html file!
