Typing the word Convert in the email subject, the attached document will be automatically converted to Kindle format before being transferred to your Kindle library and your devices. If you want to keep the original PDF format, I recommend that you keep the original PDF format when sending the document.

In case of connection problems, Amazon will ship the document or documents for the next 60 days.
