Then choose “Your Content and Devices” from the drop down menu. Then click “Preferences” on the top menu bar. Scroll down the page to “Personal Document Settings” and get the email address for your device. It is SOMETHING@kindle.com. I’ll need that. Then scroll down some more and look for “Approved Personal Document E-Mail List”. You’ll need to add me to the list of approved senders. Please add “smithe@gmail.com”.
