I've found this a great utility.  I've sent huge word docs to my kindle address and read them at my leisre on the train.  Really really easy to use

Hi, Ian.
I'm not sure, I'm afraid, I only have one device on my account, the iDevice. When I send stuff, it is in the library and it downloads to that device automatically. You may want to have a look at the settings on the site, though, I seem to recall reading that you could set a specific device to receive emailed documents. Also note that you may be charged if you use a kindle device which uses Amazon's Whispernet to get its content. They have a "free.kindle.com" service which doesn't allow the use of Whispernet. You can also make sure you aren't charged for Whispernet use by setting a charge limit on the settings page. Please excuse my ignorance about this, the only Kindle I've used is the iDevice app, I had no ability to use the products that sort of talked, I use braille which is why I just got the product for iOS.
Aman
