Set up Kindle Fire, Kindle HD for Microsoft Exchange Server

It wouldn’t be wrong if I say Amazon has been the pioneer in the e-book revolution. Amazon’s Kindle actually played a vital role in changing the biased attitude that readers used to printed pages had for e-books.  Further, the company experimented and developed its two promising gadgets, Kindle Fire and Kindle HD, that offered the similar functionality but with the ability to do more as a tablet device.

However, Amazon’s Kindle line of products does not offer native support for Microsoft Exchange Server.  You can set up your email on your Amazon device with the help of Kindle Email app. The Kindle Fire Email app uses IMAP or POP to connect to your account.
