Kindle Fire and emails

Hello,

 

I may be in the wrong place here, but can anyone tell us how to SEND emails on our new Kindle fire?  We can receive them fine. We have a desktop with XP and use Outlook Express; we are with BT Broadband.  We thought we'd done everything correctly, but obviously not.

Many thanks.

Re: Kindle Fire and emails

If its the standard Kindle email you are using and are happy with POP3 set up try these settings. (Obviously user name and password are your own BTYahoo ones). You may have used this set up

If so just check the settings are the same as below.

 

Incoming:

 

Username : xxxx@btinternet.com

Password: xxxxxxxx

POP3 Server: mail.btinternet.com

Security: None

Port:110

Delete from server: Up to you

 

Outgoing:

 

SMTP Server: mail.btinternet.com

Security type: None

Port: 25

Require Sign in (Tick box)

User Name: xxxxx@btinternet.com

Password:xxxxxxx

Re: Kindle Fire and emails

Thanks very much...I've just tried that and it doesn't seem to work...it just keeps coming up with Delete Account from Device....and there's a Remove Account Box, presumably for me to 'click' on?  Why would I want to remove it please?  And when I changed it to port 25 it just kept going back to 587 or whatever it was...I've even forgotten that now!  I think it's addling my brain...we've been struggling for over three weeks now....  Thanks for trying....I'll keep at it and see what happens next.

Regards

VC

Try deleting account and set it up again. Passwords and usernames can be case sensitive so make sure you are entering them correctly. port 587 can be used instead of port 25 if its not accepted.

Re: Kindle Fire and emails

You could alsp download the Yahoo mail app if its available at the Amazon app store. It is easy to set up and works well.

If your email is not with btyahoo you will need to have it verified so that you can send emails from it through btyahoo.

Re: Kindle Fire and emails

if you only have a btinternet account then there is no need to verify.  only 3rd party email accounts being sent from your btinternet email account need verified
