Verify your Kindle document [request]

Yesterday October 22 I emailed a docment to my Kindle's magic address and got this email

Hi ,

We received a request to send the following document to your Kindle account:
* -something orother- A4 May 2019.txt


Click below within 48 hours to verify this request.

Verify Request

Thank you for reading with Kindle!

Why did I receive this email?

Kindle takes your account security seriously. To help ensure you only receive documents from sources you trust, Kindle has added an extra layer of protection to your account. Learn more.

Prefer to skip the verification step next time?

Edit your Send to Kindle email address (-something-@kindle.com) by visiting your Preferences in Manage Your Content and Devices. After editing, be sure to notify your approved senders to ensure uninterrupted delivery of your documents and newsletters.
So I clicked and things proceeded as normal.

To avoid the new step edit your magic Send-to-Kindle email address to make it less guessable.
Quote:
Ensure your Send-to-Kindle email address is different than any other email addresses you use.
Use a combination of uppercase letters, lowercase letters, and numbers.
Avoid including any personally identifiable information.
So appending Xy99 ought to work.

Huh. I have one kindle device that had the Amazon assigned email, and one that I had a kindle mail address I edited myself. Neither one worked. I was beginning to wonder if the fact that I first tried to send the book directly from the Baen Free Library, and then second from Calibre, might have been blocked at Amazon? I actually got no notices or requests from Amazon when the email from kindle was sent from Baen or Calibre. It seemed like they were just blocked and ignored. But the ones sent from my gmail app on my pc got the Amazon response.

Baen currently { from 2015 June 10 } recommend that users use a indirect method

https://www.baen.com/t-ereaderinstructions
Emailing books directly to your Kindle

10.Click “Email book to Me”
11.Enter your personal email address into the email address box
12.Press send
13.Check your email. You should receive an email from Ebooks@baen.com with a .mobi file attached.
14.Forward this email to your Kindle, making sure the .mobi file remains attached. Within 15 minutes, your Ebook should be on your Kindle.

==

As I recall, Amazon started to apply a daily? limit on total emails from Baen so there was no problem early in the day but later emails were dropped.

I suppose the limit could apply to the emails using Calibre if there were hundreds of them.

Just sorted through some stuff. My calibre generated email to kindle never went out - gotta solve that issue someday. My Amazon provided kindle email on one device accepted books with no warning email. The kindle email that I had edited for a second device generates a warning. It would appear Amazon has determined the slight modification from my regular email (so I could remember it) was not edited enough to be different enough. I am going to leave that one alone, since I can remember it, and use the other when I am on computer that has it memorized for me.
This way if I am away from home I can use the easy to remember but warning generating kindle adress.
