Trying to get started . . .

I downloaded the Calibre program, donated and all.
When I got to setting it up I was confused about the gmail issue for sending things to my Kindle2. I have a gmail account but don't know what to fill in the two blanks there - the Kindle account - send from acct?? Feeling stupid. Sorry. Thanks for any help. I can't even find that form now!

Go to Preferences->Email delivery then click the Use gmail button. Then fill in you gmail username and password in the area at the bottom of the dialog. Click OK. You should be done.

And thanks for the donation

I don't have a kindle but I thought most people using Calibre to manage their ebooks sent the books to their kindle using the send to device feature via usb.

It is always nice to have multiple ways to do things.
