Downloading News to Kindle with Calibre

I have a problem with using Calibre to download newspapers to my Kindle 3. I set it to download automatically to the Kindle. The job appears to complete but an error message appears with the heading Failed to email book. The body of the message says failed to email the Guardian to my Kindle address. Clicking the delete x on the error message box results in the process of downloading carrying on and the paper ends up on my Kindle. What am I doing wrong?

Paste the actual error message in here. Can you email books to your Kindle without error?

That message often comes up when a firewall or something similar is blocking connection to the email server. If you have a firewall running on your network or your computer, check the settings to see if Calibre is allowed access.

No luck with the Firewall suggestion. Calibre is allowed access.

I have exactly the same problem, on the Kindle, the address used for sending is allowed, everything is working if i just send it to my other normal address... Only my Kindle address seems not to accept these mails... Who else has these problems?
