Bug Description

In version 2.3 for windows on theSharring books by email setup on the bottom right there used to be a gmail.com and hotmail.com setup buttons. Now instead of Gmail.com it has GMX.com but still uses the Gmail icon.

summary: - Sharring books by email setup has GMX.com instead of mgail.com
+ Sharring books by email setup has GMX.com instead of gmail.com

That is deliberate since google decided to cripple gmail by breaking
SMTP by default for gmail accounts. As for the icon, I couldn't find a
nice icon for GMX (the only ones I could find either were all basically
envelope with GMX written on it, which is redundant). So if you know of
a nice icon to use, feel free to post it,and I will update the icon.

The wontfix is fine, but the text on the setup page should be updated. Right now it says "The easiest way is to set up a free gmail account and click the Use gmail button below. You will also have to register your gmail address with in your Amazon account." I'll open another ticket for this.

You are refering to the text in the welcome wizard, are you not? This bug report was for Preferences->Sharing by email.

But you are correct, the welcome wizard text needs to be updated to point to GMX.
