Use the Email app to send, read, and manage e-mails from your Kindle Fire 2nd Generation. You can sync the Email app with most service providers.
The Email app comes pre-installed on your Kindle Fire 2nd Generation and is available in your Apps library.
To open the Email app, go to Home, tap Apps, and then tap Email.
You'll need an e-mail account to sync with the Email, Contacts, and Calendar apps on your Kindle Fire 2nd Generation. More than one account can be added, offering combined or single account views in each of the apps.
The Email app will automatically populate server settings for many providers. However, if you're prompted to manually set up your e-mail account, you'll need the e-mail settings for your provider. For more information, go to E-mail Provider Contact Information.
The first e-mail account you add will act as the default e-mail account on your Kindle Fire. If you set up more accounts, you can select a different default account.
If you're unable to add your e-mail account to your Kindle Fire 2nd Generation automatically, you can set it up manually.
To add an email account manually to your Kindle Fire, you'll need the incoming and outgoing server addresses of your email provider. For more information, go to E-mail Provider Contact Information.

Sync your e-mail to receive messages on your Kindle Fire 2nd Generation just as you receive them on your computer or another mobile device.
Once your e-mail account is synced with your Kindle Fire, you can change how often your inbox checks for new messages and store messages for a specified number of days.
After you set up your e-mail account on your Kindle Fire 2nd Generation, you can write, reply to, and delete an e-mail from the Email app.
Add photos, personal documents, and other attachments to your e-mails, or open and download them to your Kindle Fire 2nd Generation.
You can attach files stored on your device or in the Amazon Cloud. If you choose a file saved to the Cloud, the file will download to your device before you can send it.
If you need to find a specific message in the Email app, use the Search feature.
If your e-mail provider is not recognized automatically by the Email app, you'll need to enter your password, log-in name, POP3 or IMAP port, and server settings manually. Use the below chart to contact your e-mail provider if you don't know this information.
