Well I don't want to sound harsh nor aggressive, but that's not much of a solution : it's already been said in this very thread, and it dos not solve the problem of mails not being accepted by Amazon.

In my case I tried both GMAIL and GMX to send messages (confirmed sent) to my kindle address in MOBI, AZW3, and even DOC formats.
Every time I try, I eventually get an email from Amazon telling me that it didn't work and listing the rules...

Anyone had more change ? I wonder if the service is still working at Amazon...

Can't send from Calibre to email address

Hello all,

I have used Calibre successfully for several years. I encountered a hiccup with its use about 18 months ago which was initially managed by creating a gmx.com email address.... but recently I have been unable to transfer books from my Calibre library to any of my devices (I use Kindles and apple devices running the Kindle app), via "sharing via email", using any of my kindle emails AS WELL AS when I try to use my gmx email... here is the error message below... any help (layman's level, please!) would be very much appreciated,

thank you,

It is not authenticating to your gmx.com account. Go to the mail service gmx.com in your browser and verify that the login and password are still working.

I just tested mine and my gmx account is still authenticating correctly and was able to send a book.

I had the same problem.

[QUOTE=Pavati;3369501]First of all, let me thank you, Kovid Goyal, for creating and maintaining calibre - it makes creating own books nearly effortless and so accessible for the not-so-tech-savvy users.
As for topic - I have recently ran into same problem - calibre no longer successfuly transfers my books over to kindle (they never show up in amazon cloud). I have tried switching to different emails, but the books never showed up in amazon cloud.
Eventually I have set up GMX email account and it works, albeit oddly. When I'm sending just one book, it works fine. But whenever I'm sending more books, first one always sends fast normally, but rest of queued books take over 5 minutes to send each (anywhere between 5m10s and 5m20s). As if calibre adds 5 minutes to standard sending time for any subsequent book after first one from queue.
So if I'm sending 5 books, it takes over 20 minutes for calibre to complete all 5 tasks.
Only restarting calibre between sending each book allows sending them in reasonable time.
Is this normal behavior for GMX setup?[/Q

Back up everything on your calibre to something like a memory stick. Delete all your books and uninstall Calibre, Everything. all the data and metadata. Then download and reinstall calibre. Try to download a book to the new calibre and send to device, It worked for me. It works faster than ever now.

This is terrible advice.

There is no need to delete ALL BOOKS

If you think a Calibre install has gone corrupt:

1) Uninstall Calibre
2) Delete the Calibre CONFIGURATION FOLDER (removes all user configs and customizations)
3) Check that there is no longer a calibre2 folder in Program files

Reinstall using a FRESH download.
Use Switch/Create to point to your old Library (if it was not in the default location)
You are now ready to make a fresh set of setting changes
