Multiple Kindles, Multiple News Feeds

I apologize in advance if this has been discussed -- I couldn't find it.

I have multiple Kindles and would like to differentiate which news feeds get sent to which Kindle automatically. Short of running 2 instances of
Calibre is there a solution?

Great work on this software and thanks in advance!

There's always a workaround, but there's nothing builtin that will do this.

I got it to work by doing the following (it is a twisted trail...):

- I configured Calibre to use my GMail account for email as a mail server

- Under "Sharing books by email" in Calibre, I added my GMail Email with "auto send" turned on

- All news in Calibre is scheduled for automatic download

- I create a new free private Google group called Franks_Kindle and configured my Kindle to allow emails from the new Group (via amazon.com, "Your Kindle Approved E-mail List").

- I create a new free private Google group called Marys_Kindle and configured my wife's Kindle to allow emails from the new Group.

- I added a new forwarding address on my GMail account that goes to both groups. Google sent the confirmation code to the groups and I was able to validate the forwarding addresses in GMail. (If only I could do this via my kindle's email address...)

I then created a series of filters in GMail to automatically forward Calibre News emails to the proper groups. If both of us are interested in a news feed, it goes to both groups. If only one of us is interested in a news feed, it goes to only that person's Google group.

As an example:
- Matches:
- from franksgmail@gmail.com
- subject:LifeHacker
- Do this: Forward to Franks_Kindle , Delete it

Does this make sense?

Thanks Frank!

Got it to work but found out immediately with the NY Times that Google groups limits messages to 4 megs and thus it wouldn't go through. The other feeds did.

Sorry to raise this thread again. But I am trying do to exactly what is described below. I understand it and I have created the groups I need.

What I am puzzled with on, is how to get the Google Group to forward to a @kindle.com email address because again it requires for an email to be sent to that account and authenticated. Which of course the Kindle won't receive to do so. So it is back to square one and the same issue with just forwarding from a Gmail account.

With more and more families with multiple Kindles a feature in Calibre to allow for two email addresses getting varied newsfeeds is getting more of a killer feature. I hope this will be looked at again in the future.

@JamboUK, it's script, which I use in my project called eGazeciarz :
http://egazeciarz.pl

It's web application based on calibre in which you register with your kindle email address and then you can subscribe to periodicals you're interested in.

Is it currently up and running? Is it working for users?

This doesn't work any more using Google (as you discovered). Google changed their policy last summer. You used to be able to add email addresses directly, but you now have to reply to an email sent from the group to join.

This will still work, you just need to use a different service that will allow you to add email addresses directly -- like GroupSpace.

This doesn't work either because Calibre sends it to my Gmail account. I then want filters to send it to say a GroupSpace account via Gmail forwarding BUT Gmail then only wants to send forwarded email to a verfied account. My GroupSpace groups don't appear to be letting the verification emails that Google sends out through.
