Authorising your email address

Sending an e-book to your Kindle's email address puts that e-book on your Kindle.

This could be abused by spammers, so Amazon require you to add the address you will be sending e-books from to an approved list.

Manage Your Kindle

The Manage Your Kindle page on Amazon's web site lets you add your email address to the list.

For your convenience, here are a couple of links:

Amazon may redesign their sites at any time, in which case these links won't work and you will have to search the Amazon site yourself.

  1. At the top of your Amazon screen, there should be a menu bar with a number of options. Choose "Manage Your Content and Devices".
  2. The "Manage Your Content and Devices" page is divided into three sections: Your Content, Your Devices, and Settings.
  3. Open the "Settings" section.
  4. Scroll down to the "Personal Document Settings" heading.
  5. A little way below this, there is a heading saying "Approved Personal Document E-mail List".
  6. Make sure that your own email address is in the list. If it isn't, click on the link saying "Add a new approved e-mail address".
