Most of us think that Kindle is limited to reading. But, there’s more to it that we should explore. During the initial days of using Kindle, I’ve always thought of it as a reading partner. However, after learning about its email feature, I’ve thought, why is my Kindle not receiving emails? Eventually, I found the solution that I’d like to share with you.

How Do I Send A Word Document To My Kindle
You can send a word document to Kindle in three ways – as an attachment to an email address, via an open-source e-book manager like Calibre, and via USB to connect Kindle to the computer.
1: As An Attachment
One way to send a Word document to your Kindle is to email it as an attachment to your Kindle’s email address. Amazon will then convert the file to Kindle format and deliver it wirelessly to your device.
2: Via An Open-Source E-book Manager
Another way to get a Word document onto your Kindle is by using Calibre, a free and open-source e-book manager. With Calibre, you can simply add the Word document to your library and sync it wirelessly to your device.
3: Via An USB
Finally, you can also transfer the file via USB by connecting your Kindle to your computer. Once the devices are connected, you can drag and drop the file into the documents folder on your Kindle.
Keep in mind that not all Kindle devices can display Microsoft Word documents, so you may want to check the specs of your device before trying any of these methods.
How Do I Retrieve Books Sent To My Kindle Email
If you’re trying to find a book that was sent to your Kindle email address, the first step is to check your Send-to-Kindle E-Mail Settings. These settings will tell you which email address is associated with your Kindle device. Sometimes, books can land in spam or junk folders of your email account.
If the book was sent to a different email address than the one listed in your Send-to-Kindle E-Mail Settings, it would need to be forwarded to your Kindle device’s email address before it can be downloaded wirelessly.
If the book was sent to the correct email address, but if you’re still having trouble finding it, try checking your Spam or Junk mail folder. Sometimes books can get caught in filtering software.
Once you have located the book, you can save it to your Kindle by selecting the book and choosing Save & Sync from the Actions menu.
