Emailing (successfully) to Kindle but not receiving

Hello,

tried both with GMX and my own email server. Tried with different Kindle accounts (we have 3 kindle's)

In the past all worked fine... I am not 100% sure when it stopped working but I do remember there being a setting that if you email to Amazon, conversion to mobi has to take place (most of my books are in epub format) At some point I selected the option to not ask me again if I wanted the books to be converted... I have the idea that after that, it stopped working...

The problem:

Calibre is succesfully sending email to Amazon both using GMX and my own email server (I tried my own server since GMX was failing but used GMX in the past). When the task is completed the log ends with "Email successfully sent

Both email accounts are trusted to send emails to my Kindle.

So it appears all settings are correct.... the books just never arrive....

When testing if the email was correct (in Calibre, when setting up email you can test the server) it actualy sends an email to the recipient. Aamzon notified me with the following:

Your message to amazon_xxxxxx@kindle.com, sent at 07:10 AM on Wed, Nov 02, 2016 GMT did not include any attached documents or image files.

Which means, Amazon is actualy receiving emails that I am sending....

I have tried several books, all roughly 1MB big (No idea if that would make a difference) but all fail on all 3 kindles.

I have send a book to my kindle using my normal email client, this works fine.


So something is going wrong for me... Any help appreciated.

tia !

Did you try converting a book to mobi format before sending?

Yes.

The book is automaticaly converted the first time you try to send the book. Therefore it was easy to try to send it again because it was allready converted.

Also, when I send the mobi file from another mail client, it arrives at my kindle without a problem....

Is Amazon blocking transfers via Calibre and GMX?

When Amazon blocked my Paperwhite from receiving books via Calibre, I opened a GMX account which has worked well ever since, even a couple of days ago, however I attempted to send a book today via both and they have not been received by the PW.
Has Amazon blocked GMX transfers as well?
