Accessing Gmail or Yahoo Mail on Kindle Device.
You can configure your email to open up on Kindle. Amazon has instructions on how to set up your email on Kindle to receive and send mail. Another option is to access your email via the Kindle browser. The Kindle has its own web browser provided by Amazon. It is an experimental basic browser that allows you to surf the web and access your Gmail / Yahoo Mail in mobile page mode. Just like a mobile browser, it will allow you to type in the URL of your email service in the address bar, then log in with your Gmail or Yahoo Mail password. You should then be able to check and view your mail.However, since only the mobile version of Gmail/Yahoo is supported by Kindle browser, you won’t be able to see all the features of your email account, and as such you will not be able to download and open the attachments in your Gmail / Yahoo Mail account, but you can send email.
