tl;dr I've sent a number of files to my Kindle 10th's private email address about 3,5 hour ago and there is no reaction so far -- neither return / rejection email nor books appearing in the device.
Is this normal or how can I speed up this process?
When I have registered my "private" emails address for my Kindle 3rd generation ten years ago, I needed about 10-15 minutes between sending an attachment to that address and actually seeing a book in my device.
If there was any kind of error (format not supported, file too big for the conversion engine etc.) then the response / rejection email also needed no more than 15 minutes to arrive.
Has this changed over 10 years or with the Kindle 10th Paperwhite edition?
It is now 3.5 hours since I've sent a number of books to my freshly registered Kindle's email address and... there's nothing. No rejection emails and no books actually appearing in my Librardy / Downloaded section.
Since I wanted to quickly transfer a kind of lot of books then by accident I tested probably all possible situations:
- Sending one ebook per emails vs. sending many files attached to a single email
- Sending small files (less than 1 MB) vs reading Gmail's maximum (25 MB)
- Sending different file formats, including: PDF, DOCX, AZW and MOBI etc.
All for nothing. Three and a half hours has passed and I neither have access to my books on my brand new Paperwhite nor I have any notification / response in my inbox that something went wrong.
Is this normal situation? Is there any way that can I speed up this process?
