How to Change Your Email Address on Your Amazon Kindle Account

Updated March 23, 2017

Amazon's Kindle e-book reader allows users to download and read electronic books in the Kindle-specific format. It also allows users to send documents to their Kindle e-mail address for file conversion. For a small fee, Amazon will convert the document to the Kindle format, allowing you to view it on your Kindle device. If you need to change your Kindle e-mail address, or add another personal e-mail address to your Kindle account, you can do so using the "Manage My Kindle" tool on the Amazon website.

Navigate to the Amazon home page. Click "Manage My Kindle" at the bottom of the page. Type your e-mail address and password in the appropriate boxes, then click "Sign in using our secure server."

Click "Edit Info" next to your Kindle's listing on the page that appears.

Highlight the text in the box titled "Kindle e-mail Address" and press the "Delete" key. Type a new address in the box.

Click "Update Information."

Type a new e-mail address in the box under the heading titled "Your Kindle Approved e-mail List" if you wish to have your Kindle e-mail address recognise your personal e-mail address. This is necessary if you want to send documents for conversion to your Kindle e-mail address. Click "Add Address" when finished.
