Default Kindle sideload

I just tried to use Amazon's e-mail-to-Kindle system to send two books to my Kindle. One was in the .MOBI format, the other was in their .KPF format. Both were rejected.

As of August 2022, it is no longer possible to e-mail files in the .MOBI or .AZW formats to a Kindle device. (And that apparently also includes the .KPF file format, although the rejection notification I received didn't say that.

But ... the e-mail it to yourself system apparently can now convert other formats to whatever the current Kindle file format is. According to the notice I received, you can now send files in the following formats, and Amazon will convert them for upload to your Kindle account:

Send to Kindle emails supports the following document formats: Adobe PDF (.pdf)
Microsoft Word (.doc, .docx)
Rich Text Format (.rtf)
HTML (.htm, .html)
Text (.txt) documents
Archived documents (zip , x-zip) and compressed archived documents
MOBI (.azw, .mobi) (will not support the most up-to-date Kindle features for documents)
EPUB (.epub)
JPEG (.jpg), GIF (.gif), Bitmap (.bmp), and PNG (.png) images.
If the format of the document that failed is supported (listed above), please ensure the document is not password protected or encrypted, and try sending it again.
