Auto convert ePub into Mobi?

I want my news sources to automatically convert to .mob format when they download so that when they are emailed to my Kindle 3 they won't fail. How can I do this?

If you specify a Kindle a your device in the Welcome wizard then news will be generated in mobi format in the first place. You can always rerun the Welcome Wizard via the button on the Preferences Dialog.

Go to Preferences - Behavior and change the Preferred output format to Mobi.

I would rather have my preferred output set to ePub so that when I'm browsing books via the content server on my iPad, I can use the "Get" button and import the ePub version into iBooks.

I don't suppose there's a way to have the "Get" button use ePub and the News feature use Mobi?

Not that I'm aware of.

For folks that fetch news to read on their Kindle having the default output set to Mobi is critical to formatting your periodicals correctly.

I see both EPUB and Mobi 'get' buttons (when both are in the Library) from my K4 (browser).

I may be wrong, but isn't one a "get button" and the other an obvious link? I agree though it is just as easy to click on the link as the get button.

I see 2 buttons (next to each other) on the K4.

I was talking about the content server, so two buttons it is.
