I've tried to send from the caliber to my Fire and each time I get an error message saying the transfer failed. The event log says that the email/password don't match. I have sent a pdf from my email to the kindle email and that works.

I have looked at the Caliber FAQ and nothing definitive. Additionally, I've reset the email info in caliber several times.

Does anyone have a solution?

Thank you.

If you're using an email service other than Gmail, the most likely cause of your problem is that Amazon's server is blocking your email. The recommended solution is as follows:
*Create a free GMail account at Google.
*Go to Preferences->Email in calibre and click the "Use Gmail" button and fill in the information asked for.
*calibre will then use GMail to send the mail.
*If you are sending to your Kindle, remember to update the email preferences on your Amazon Kindle page to allow email sent from your GMail email address.

If you still have problems, your anti-virus program may be blocking calibre from opening an email connection. Try temporarily disabling your anti-virus program and attempt to send the email again. If it works when disabled, you need to create an exclusion for calibre in your anti-virus program.
