While the Kindle Fire has an integrated email client that individuals can use to access their email services, owners of all versions of the Kindle can also access their email accounts using the Kindle’s built-in Web browser. POP3 and IMAP-based email services, such as Yahoo, Gmail, Microsoft Exchange and Hotmail or Windows Live, integrate well with the Kindle’s native client. Users who find the email app limiting have the option of downloading and installing third-party email apps from the Amazon Store to manage their accounts.Kindle Fire’s Integrated Email App
