e-mails from calibre are blocked

I seem to be unable to e-mail to my Kindle from Calibre. Transfer through USB is OK, and e-mailing to Kindle from elsewhere is fine too. Error message reads as follows:

calibre, version 0.8.3
ERROR: E-mailen van boek mislukt: <b>Mislukt</b>: E-mail Gazet van Antwerpen naar trifora@kindle.com

e-mail from calibre to my normal e-mail address comes up with same error.

Any ideas?

Are you sure that the email address you are sending from is unblocked in your kindle account. (The Kindle will refuse emails unless they come from an address you have specified to Amazon on the "Manage My Account" page.)

The other thing is have you told your security software that Calibre (and calibre-parrallel) is a trusted application? If not many brands of security software block the email ports.

Yes, in Kindle the address is unblocked, I can sent to my device from my normal e-mail address and other adresses I listed earlier without problems. Just from Calibre they are refused.
I believe Calibre is supposed to send e-mails in the name of my own e-mail, but perhaps the systems (my e-mail provider, Amazon, etc) recognise the e-mail as being sent from an unregistered e-mail address?
How do I tell my security software to ignore or accept Calibre e-mails? Don't I need to know under which name or from which address or server Calibre sends its mails?

Thanks!

That error message implies your email server is refusing the connection, the most likely cause of which is that you have the port or encryption settings wrong for that server.

I suggest you setup a free gmail account and use that.

I have found he cause of the problem: My security software McAfee VirusScan Enterprise 8.7i stopped outgoing mails from calibre as prevention against mass mailing worms. I added calibre.exe to the programs to exclude in McAfee and now the e-mailing works thru GMAIL, not yet thru my regular address but that will be because of that particular e-mail server, still working on that.
Thanks for the help!

A picture is worth a thousand words as they say. Open the virus scan console then click the hiligheted items and add, calibre.exe Don't forget the COMMA , separator.

Apparently flickr didn't like that.
