open large mobi file in IOS Kindle app

I have a GMX account. It has a size limit. So does amazon.com. File size exceeds their limits. So email from Calibre through GMX through amazon won't work.

A transfer via a cloud account gets it on my iPad, but trying to open in the Kindle app doesn't work. Kindle app wants to send it through amazon, so size once again is a roadblock.

Is there a direct way I can add a large mobi file from my PC to my iPad AND open it in the IOS Kindle app?

iTunes file sharing? Should still work unless Amazon removed support for it in the Kindle app.

If the .mobi file isn't DRM-protected, you could try and convert it to an .epub file and read it with Apple Books.
If you like the Kindle app, you could also try and convert the book to a .kfx file with Calibre and sideload it with iTunes.
BTW, if you generated the .mobi file yourself with KindleGen or Kindle Previewer, the .mobi file will also contain the source files unless you specified the -dont_append_source parameter.

Thank you. I like the Kindle app because most everything I have is there. The most recent book that raised the question (again) was an .epub file I downloaded and then converted to .mobi in the main Calibre program. I do have the kfx plugin installed. But, I am not following what you are referring to re KindleGen or Kindle Previewer. I would like to understand. In any case, transfer via iTunes works. Many hot links in the book seem to be are missing, but I don't know whether they were there to start with.
