Trying to set up Yahoo mail on my Kindle and keeps saying that it can’t access the server. What gives

Rick Belisle

I have a Kindle Fire HD 10 (9th generation). Up until 1/5/2021 my yahoo mail allowed me to use one of my “sub accounts” as my default name in the From: field. My yahoo mail account on my laptop still does this automatically. But, after 1/5/2021 something on my kindle changed. I can no longer access or see my subs account name. Furthermore, all of my emails show the original/ actual account name in the From: field, which I haven’t used in 15 years!

I’ve tried deleting the email accounts and reinstalling them 3 times!


I have email set up on fire 10, but there is no way to mass delete the email, only one at a time. Use AOL.

Can’t do step 3. There is no Manage Email Accounts option under My Account. Another dead end trying to figure out how to use app to access email instead of having to use Silk Browser.

My old (ver: 3 Fire) and my new (ver: 4 Fire Plus) will no longer access email ether. It says my email address or my password is incorrect. However I can use the same password and user name on my desktop computer and my cell phone to get current email???? What is Kindle doing to screw up the email on their devices??? Yet I can go to the web browser on both Amazons Fires and log into my yahoo mail account and get current mail. ??????? Any body have a fix????


My fire 7 has just developed this problem today, l can access emails if l open AOL on the ‘desktop’ but can’t set as a shortcut on the carousel. Tried different things to solve but can’t
