The short version is that my Kindle Fire HD email app rarely shows any email, even though there is mail.
Two of the email accounts are with POP3 providers (different hosts) and two are GMail. I set up the Kindle accounts identically to the way they are set upon my Thunderbird Windows desktop email client.
The main symptom is that no mail is listed. I can access the accounts with webmail clients and see lots of emails. On a rare occasion an email will show, but then it goes away. I can send emails OK. GMail shows all of the folders, and works sometimes.
Sometimes I get the message "Authentication failed" on one or another of the accounts (both POPO3 and Gmail) when synchronizing. Which account seems random.
I've deleted and recreated accounts on the Kindle, and sometimes it will work one time on a new account, but stop working afterwards. I never have problems with my desktop client.
Here are some particulars about the POP accounts:
Security type: STARTTLS (accept all certificates)
Security type SSL/TLS (accept all certificates)
For the K9 account that works, I set up Account 2 as
Incoming server settings:
Security: SSL (always)
What is very frustrating is the total lack of informative error messages and diagnostic information from the the Kindle default Email program.
