Kindle not accepting MOBI

I'm really sorry if this has been addressed already but I can no longer send mobi files to my kindle. Although kindle says it takes epub files, Calibre will only send the files if they are mobi.
I'm sure people reading this are screaming at the screens now but if you could just tell me what to do I'd be really grateful.

Amazon does not like 1 seconds intervals, their bot will think it is span and ban you.

Set up an email rely using the instruction from the manual:


https://manual.calibre-ebook.com/faq...-using-calibre

Be sure to set your interval to 10 seconds or more for best results.

Calibre converting to MOBI

Why does Calibre INSIST on converting files to MOBI? I've altered all the settings I can find. The files are being converted to epub or the azw3 which would presumably work on the Kindle but Calibre wont even try to send them unless the are converted to MOBI.

Because you did not change the allowed format in the correct place.
HOW are you sending the book to your Kindle (BTW can you show which model (+version. in your profile) so we can tell you where to look?

Connect the device (Assume USB?): Right click the device icon: Configure THIS device (once a device has been used, calibre puts the settings into the Config folder for future use with THAT device).
The order of Ticked determines 1)What existing Library version is used. 2)If on the fly conversion is needed, the highest will be used

Have you checked in Preferences => Sharing books by email? Remove mobi from the formats column and add epub.

Please note that when sending a book by USB to a eInk Kindle, it has to be an Amazon supported format (mobi, azw3, etc). Epub and a Kindle is not going to work.
