Suggestion for sharing to multiple email addresses

I have 3 kids with Kindle and am happily using Calibre to send them their books by using Sharing to their kindle email address.

Problem is that I never remember which child has which Kindle email address abc_1234@Kindle.com, cba_4321@Kindle.com, etc

My suggestion is to make an extra column to I can add a name to each email address and easily know who it belongs to.

Under preferences try changing

abc_1234@Kindle.com and
cba_4321@Kindle.com
to
Child1 Name <abc_1234@Kindle.com> and
Child2 Name <cba_4321@Kindle.com>

It should work fine.

Can one enter multiple email addresses, and select which thing will be sent to which one? That is, I manage 3 kindles. My husband wants me to set up a recipe to send specific web comics to his kindle, but I don't want them sent to mine or to my son's. but I do want other things sent to my son's kindle, and yet other things sent to mine - and it's a PITA to have to go in and change the email address every time.

Well, duh. So sorry to have asked a dumb question when I could have found the answer just by looking at the Preferences screen. Maybe another cup of coffee will help.

yes. not only can you enter multiple and choose between them, you can also send to multiple at the same time.

For example, you can have entries for:

mom@xyz.com
dad@xyz.com
kids@xyz.com
mom@xyz.com, dad@xyz.com
mom@xyz.com, dad@xyz.com, kids@xyz.com


now when you go to connect/share - email to...
you'll have 5 choices... each account individually, or just mom and dad but not the kids, or the whole family.

use a comma to separate the entries with more than one email.
