Can I access Gmail, Hotmail or AOL email with Kindles of any size?

Mikki - You can easily access them on the Fires. You can access gmail on the e-ink Kindles but it is extremely slow and clunky. Since Hotmail changed to Outlook I don't think it can be accessed. I don't know about AOL.

I believe that Fire e-mail app supports not only SMTP/POP3 and IMAP, but also MS Exchange protocols. I haven't tried it, though, and this is from memory...

Yes, you can access everything on the Fires.

It's the e-ink experimental browser that doesn't necessarily work with everything. I know there were several long threads when Hotmail changed to Outlook and it no longer works on those browsers. I've never bothered to try since I have no desire to even attempt to email on an e-ink Kindle.

Ah, yes, I see you meant e-ink Kindles.
