I only use my kindle fire to access hotmail occasionally, but it's nice to have. However, I recently updated my password for it; now I can't get email on my kindle.

I've looked all over in various settings options, but can't find where to update I really have to delete the whole account and start over?

If recently updated your password why do need to "find where to update this". Sorry, but your post makes no sense. Perhaps if you'd just explain step-by-step it'd be easier to understand and help. Did you actually change the password? What does "update" mean?

No idea if you have to delete and start over. Since this is a forum and not a tech help center it's up to you to provide the particulars so that those that help you free of charge and a lack of polite "please" on your part you have to work a bit more to help yourself.

open your email click on the email account you wish to update go to the top right corner of your email next to new you will see a box with 3 lines click it click settings and type your new password and click save..if that doesn't work to update your password you have to remove the account and start new..I've had to remove mine before it didn't take long to do it again

In reply to an earlier post on Mar 1, 2013 7:16:46 AM PST my frustration I do see that I forgot to say "please", but I hadn't expected such a vitriolic response. I will try again.

I (using my computer) recently changed my hotmail password. When I tried to use my kindle fire to check email this morning, using the app, I received an error message due to the (now incorrect) password.

I have gone through the various "help" sections in the users guide on the device, and have only found instructions for getting email once the account has been set up, and how to set up additional email accounts for access, but nothing indicating how to update accounts set up previously for the app.

I had posted here hoping someone might have experienced something similar, and might be able to offer some suggestions, well aware that this isn't a tech forum. As I said, I was frustrated when I posted. Since I really only use the email app as an occasional convenience, I'll just go back to the laptop for it.

Thanks, Elizabeth! I'll give that a try later.

you are very welcome..I hope it helps and BTW I know your frustration my Kindle fire drives me crazy now and than too for one reason or another..Also when I first started in the Amazon forum I didn't know I was writing my help post here and not in the help forum..I got a very unhelpful/mean message from a user too! I just see it this way if they don't want to answer they don't have why some people get unhelpful/mean about it I will never know! Good luck to you..

Ladies, please try to ignore Fud. He seems to delight in being the first one to respond to a new question. His M.O. is to insult the person asking the question, and then disappear.

Write back if you ever have a new question. Most people on these boards are very nice. I've learned all sorts of new things here that aren't in the User Guide.
