Email

Email is not supported natively beyond the extremely rudimentary browser in the experimental menu.

Web Browsing

While a web browser is included on the Kindle DX, it is very rudimentary and not supported by amazon. Much like the audio playback, the web browsing feature is obviously something that wasn't really given a lot of time and attention to develop, as navigation is painfully slow, and difficult to anything beyond very basic browser tasks.

Don't even bother with this one

If you set it up correctly, the browser might not be the worst thing in the world to check simple headlines or RSS feeds, but beyond that, the Kindle DX is not a viable option for portable web browsing.
