is any one else having problems with the fire hd not picking up email ?

Hi, yes I am having huge problems getting set up to my email account with BTinternet, Amazon are making caring sounds but little else helpful, I think they have screwed up the Android based software somewhere along the line on the Kindle fire.

I too am having problems - I have been on to my provider - the Post Office and have been on to Amazon for over an hour today - useless. I have a Ipad, Ipod touch and a Galaxy tab, all have my e-mails with no problem, but am unable to set up my account on the Kindle Fire.

Perhaps I am missing something but I am unable to set up the email account because i do not know what is required in the description field. A description of what ? can anyone help please ?

Hurbster, if I open an email using the app, in the top left hand corner is the three line menu icon. When I tap that I see a list of all the folders.

I have a Gmail account and although the default kindle fire email app was easy to set up with it I find the browser version better - eg the app sometimes doesn't send replies.

Very strange I am sending and receiving regularly from 3 of my. 5 that I have set up .I have used my bt as my default and can click into any other from display on left. I can show folders attached to each account the same way. Not sure how but it appears I struck lucky with setting them up........

Denis Powell says:
If you want to watch live TV try the TVCatchup app. That has most of the main channels including all the BBC, ITV, Channels 4 and 5, with their +1s, plus others.

The BBC iPlayer app is in the Amazon App Store but you also need to install BBC Media Player.

WHICH e-mail provider are you using? How do you connect to it? Which protocols are you using? iMAP, POP3? Is there any other devices also accessing the same e-mail account?

Do you not have tick boxes that you can use to select multiple emails?

You're probably now looking at the full website service whereas on your Computer you were possibly downloading emails using something like Outlook Express.

I use Yahoo and there's an option there to empty the "bin" with one click, and to delete a page at a time from the Inbox. You may have something similar.
