Problem sending email to my Kindle account
#1  Simsky 11-06-2020, 09:00 PM
Hello everybody,

I am getting some problems to send ebooks from my Calibre library to the mail of my Kindle account. On my Amazon account, I added the sending mail in the list of approved emails to send ebooks. When I send a book attached directly from that email, the book is being received on my kindle.

Yet, when I try to send it via Calibre, there is a time-out.
The sending and receiving emails on Calibre both seem good.
Also, in the preferences, when I try to make the test of the mailing configuration, I am getting that message:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "site-packages/calibre/gui2/wizard/send_email.py", line 209, in test_email_settings
File "site-packages/calibre/utils/smtp.py", line 162, in sendmail
File "site-packages/calibre/utils/smtp.py", line 143, in sendmail_direct
IOError: Failed to send mail: error(60, 'Operation timed out')


Log:
Find mail exchanger for kindle.com
connect: (u'retail-smtp-in.amazon.com.', 25)
connect: (u'retail-smtp-in.amazon.com.', 25)
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "site-packages/calibre/utils/smtp.py", line 136, in sendmail_direct
File "site-packages/calibre/utils/smtplib.py", line 338, in connect
File "site-packages/calibre/utils/smtplib.py", line 312, in _get_socket
File "lib/python2.7/socket.py", line 575, in create_connection
error: [Errno 60] Operation timed out

I am on Calibre 4.23 running on macOS Catalina 10.15.7.
I think I got it working in the past, but no idea why it is not working now.
I installed the last version but got back to the 4.23 to be able to use DEDRM plugin.

Would someone be able to help me with that issue?

Thank you,
Best Regards,
Simsky

Trying a connection to retail-smtp-in.amazon.com does not appear to be responding with an expected message similar to "220 retail-smtp-in.amazon.com ESMTP server ready". That address may have worked a few years back but not it does not appear to be working now.

If you use your ISP's SMTP server address with your username/password, what results do you see?

Thank you, I got it to work filling the smtp server information and all and activating on my gmail account the connections from outside.

If you could make a hotmail account it works better than gmail to send mail

Hotmail is for when you absolutely want to lose your email in the blink of an eye. Use Outlook instead.

Question: When was the last time you put hotmail.com into your address bar...?

I still use the hotmail account I signed up for when Sabeer Bhatia and Jack Smith owned it. That was in late 1995, when it was called HoTMaiL and the client ran on Solaris. And through its various incarnations I have never lost anything from it -- unlike GMail and Lavabit.

Don't think I ever did, before now

Do that and you end up at Outlook. So really, Hotmail is dead.
