In this case we can go ahead a try this following steps

1st Generation Kindle Fire Email Setup For POP/IMAP:

  2. If this is to be your first email account on your Kindle Fire tap Start, then for Select E-Mail Provider select Other. However, if you already have an account tap the menu icon followed by Add Account then Other.
  3. The Username is ***** ***** email address and the Password ***** ***** email password. Tap Next than select POP 3 or IMAP (IMAP is recommended because of larger feature support).
  4. Under Incoming Server settings, the settings will be showed already at their default values but we will change a few of them….Your Username is ***** ***** be your full email address and your Password ***** ***** email password.
  5. Type the needed IMAP/POP server name. For Security type, select SSL while for Authentication type verify PLAIN is selected. In Port make sure it is set to 993 if you’re using IMAP or 995 if you’re using POP.
  6. If using IMAP, for IMAP path prefix value leave the default value (Automatic using NAMESPACE if available).

  9. After clicking Next verify that the Authentication type is set to Automatic. For the Inbox settings page, under the Folder poil frequency list choose how often you want your Kindle Fire to check your Inbox (more often will assure fast access to emails whilst also possibly affecting performance).
  10. Then on the Finish page, enter a display name and an account name. You are now free to check your email by tapping View Your Inbox at any time.

If above steps doesn't works, please try this following steps below:

  5. Under Incoming Server settings, the settings will be showed already at their default values but we will change a few of them….Your Username is ***** ***** be your full email address and your Password ***** ***** email password.
  6. Type the needed IMAP/POP server name. For Security type, select SSL/TLS. In Port make sure it is set to 993 if you’re using IMAP or 995 if you’re using POP.
  7. After clicking Next, under Outgoing Server settings, the settings will be showed already at their default values but we will change a few of them…
  8. Type the needed SMTP server name. For Security type, select StartTLS. In Port make sure 587 is selected, and also verify the selection of “Require Sign-In“.
  9. For Username, it’s your email address and Password ***** ***** email password. Then on the Finish page, enter a display name and an account name. You are now free to check your email by tapping View Your Inbox at any time.
