Setting up Calibre

Hi...new to this and not the most technical person!!!

Downloaded Calibre ok but when it asked you to set up email details it all went pear-shaped! Doesn't seem to recognise my email address! Suggested setting up a Gmail account....i didnt fancy that....all sounded far too complicated....

now when I eg. try to get news.....it comes up on calibre, but says it could not email this to me!!!

Don't know how to fix this??!!

Any ideas?

Thanks

welcome to mobileread ....

This isn't an aspect of Calibre that I have used, but it seems to be working for me on a test .... Have you double checked what you entered as your email ?

Go into [Preferences] - [Email Delivery]

Add your email address to the top box by pressing the green plus-sign.

Then repeat you email address in the 'Send email from' box.

Save Preferences by pressing OK.

Go back to your library, select a book/news (presumably with a mobi format for your Kindle).

Press [Connect/share] button and choose one of the 'email to' options.

You should get a little pop-up balloon telling you that calibre has sent the email.

Positive encouragement is always good, but the OP has yet to confirm the resolution of their problem.

true, but I meant Sydney's Mum and probably in error ... :whoops:

The OP has not come back and told us the latest .... not too sure why the gmail account was necessary, though .... I don't use the facility but the test I did allowed me to use a non-gmail account.

I've been trying to get the email function to work also. I either get a time-out (with no server specified) or the following, if I enter the server info:

ERROR: Failed to email books: Failed to email the following books:

The Mystery of Khufu's Tomb

SMTP_SSL instance has no attribute 'sock'
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "site-packages/calibre/gui2/device.py", line 597, in _send_mails
File "site-packages/calibre/utils/smtp.py", line 96, in sendmail
File "lib/python2.6/smtplib.py", line 295, in connect
File "site-packages/calibre/utils/smtp.py", line 87, in _get_socket
AttributeError: SMTP_SSL instance has no attribute 'sock'

I'm using a MacBook with Apple's Mail app, if that makes any difference.

Probably a bug with the SSL support, I'll add a fix to the next release, but it wont be tested as I don't have access to an SSL email server.

OK, thanks.

Meanwhile, I tested it with a Gmail account and it works OK with that.

Setup email behind proxy

I have trouble to setup email for Calibre. My PC connects to internet via proxy. "Fetch news" works fine.

Mail delivery failed with message,
Email abco stvno@gmail.com
connect: (u'smtp.gmail.com', 587)
connect: (587, u'smtp.gmail.com')

Sending failed...
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\email.py", line 116, in run
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\email.py", line 170, in sendmail
File "site-packages\calibre\utils\smtp.py", line 103, in sendmail
File "site-packages\calibre\utils\smtplib.py", line 303, in connect
File "site-packages\calibre\utils\smtplib.py", line 281, in _get_socket
File "socket.py", line 567, in create_connection
error: [Errno 10060] A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond

Did I miss anything? Is Calibre able to mail delivery through proxy?

Hi

I would grey out that email link on the post, you don't want any unwanted spam (do you?)
