How to force Calibre to send AZW3 format?

I have checked every preference, but cannot get AZW3 to show up in email formats. How do I add something to email formats (mine currently reads AZW, Mobi, ...)

Try double-clicking the formats field and edit the formats.

Edit: This may not apply to you but the last time I tried to email an AZW3 to my kindle address, it was rejected by amazon as an unsupported format. This was two days ago. I read on the forums that changing the extension to .mobi works. Haven't tried that yet...

So how do you tell Calibre to rename the file from *.azv3 to *.mobi

The only way I'm aware of is to do an azw3 to mobi conversion and set the Mobi file type to "New" in the mobi output options.

I just tried this myself, however, and Amazon's Personal Document service rejected the file.

I tried downloading an azw3 sample from Amazon, renamed it with a mobi extension and side-loaded the file. It wouldn't open on my Paperwhite (5.3.3).

I'm not really sure how the personal documents service supports KF8 now:

Personal Documents service won't accept something without a mobi segment.

Calibre doesn't seem to be able to create 'hybrid' (mobi+kf8) files. That would be useful if you are sending to personal documents service (and I think it might need .mobi extension as well), which now supports kf8. Of course you would still want kf8-only files for side-loading.

In the mobi output options, you can set the mobi file type to "Both" which produces a hybrid file. That was accepted by the PDS and the downloaded file works fine.

Thanks for the info.

@Jimmy-Jim-
Did the pds accept (upload) and download the entire hybrid file or did it only accept and download the mobi part?

Sorry I didn't give more information before; I was rushed.

The size of the file in my Kindle library is identical to the original file I emailed. However, my Paperwhite ended up with an azw3 (KF8) file about two-thirds the size.

I'm guessing devices that support only the older format get an azw (mobi) file.

@Jimmy-Jim-
Thanks for the clarification!....thats rather interesting. Sounds as if Amazon will only upload something with a mobi file in it somewhere, but will selectively download. I wonder why?
