As you can see, the mobi file is 44M which presumably is too large for something somewhere along the line in getting this into the kindle e-mail service:

thufir@dur:~/Calibre Library/William Rothwell$ 
thufir@dur:~/Calibre Library/William Rothwell$ ls -hal Linux\ Essentials\ for\ Cybersecurity\ \(Pearson\ IT\ Cybersecurity\ Curriculum\ \(ITCC\)\)\ \(60\)/
total 44M
drwxr-xr-x 2 thufir thufir 4.0K Jun 13 00:46  .
drwxr-xr-x 3 thufir thufir 4.0K Jun 13 00:45  ..
-rw-r--r-- 1 thufir thufir 113K Jun 13 00:45  cover.jpg
-rw-r--r-- 1 thufir thufir  44M Jun 13 00:46 'Linux Essentials for Cybersecurity (Pearso - William Rothwell.mobi'
-rw-r--r-- 1 thufir thufir 1.5K Jun 13 00:45  metadata.opf
thufir@dur:~/Calibre Library/William Rothwell$ 

How can I utilize the Calibre share functionalitly to send to my Kindle via the cloud service? (Other books sent from Calibre come through fine.)

No doubt I could manually transfer the file with USB -- I'm only asking about the cloud service.

Not quite understanding why it shows as 44M above as, after copying the mobi file to the desktop, shows:

thufir@dur:~/Desktop$ ls -hal
total 17M
drwxr-xr-x  2 thufir thufir 4.0K Jun 13 13:15  .
drwxr-xr-x 48 thufir thufir 4.0K Jun 13 00:46  ..
-rw-rw-r--  1 thufir thufir 6.9M Jun 13 13:15  kali.tar.gz
-rw-r--r--  1 thufir thufir 9.5M Jun 12 23:43 'Learning Kali Linux_ Security Testing, Pen - Ric Messier.mobi'

which is a bit more reasonable.
