  1. Select create an account, which is found in the top right-hand corner of your menu bar.
  2. Pick a GMX email address, like your full name or company name, for example. Click 'check' to see if your chosen email address is available to use. In the event that your preferred email address is taken, GMX provides you with similar alternatives.
  3. Type in your gender, name, country, state, and date of birth.
  4. Now it’s time to pick a complex password. This means that it should contain at least eight characters, one uppercase and lowercase letter, a symbol, and a number. If your password is secure enough by GMX standards, then the password bar will turn green and you can continue.
  5. Choose a backup recovery option in case you forget your password. You can include your mobile phone number and/or a secondary email address. These details will remain secure and are only used when password recovery is necessary.
  6. Prove you’re human by typing in the Google security captcha form.
  7. Read the terms and conditions before selecting 'agree'. Now you’re done!

Is it possible to format emails?

You can use a variety of interesting formatting options, such as emojis and different fonts and colours. Click the ‘more’ button next to the emojis for further formatting possibilities. You can also create a personalised e-card and insert your own image and text with 'GMX Stationery'.

Is it easy to organise my emails?

The best way to sort your emails is to make your own folders and choose filter rules so that emails from particular senders and certain subjects will be sent to a designated folder. Make use of the ability to drag and drop emails into the folders you’ve just made. If you want to remind yourself to view an email or edit something later in the day, then mark it as a ‘favourite‘ by clicking the yellow star near the subject line in your inbox. Discover more info on how to manage folders.

Can I encrypt my emails to keep communication private?

GMX provides an encrypted PGP email feature, which means you can encrypt any email so that your message is private, no matter where it’s sent across the world. The content and any attachments in the email will be transformed to what is essentially a code consisting of unreadable letters and characters – only the recipient(s) with the decryption key can see your message once converted. Learn more about email encryption.

How can I keep my mailbox secure?

Once you create a new email account for free with GMX, all your messages will be protected with spam filters, virus and malware scanning, as well as the fact that your data is secured in Europe, according to strict European data protection standards. Our security help page provides more tips on protecting yourself against hacks, spammers, phishing emails, and keeping your password safe and secure.
