Mail Collector: The Solution for Organising Email Accounts

Gain access to all email accounts in one place

Keeping track of all your accounts can be a hassle if you need several emails for different purposes. Perhaps you need separate email addresses for your private use, work, or different projects. The good news? With Mail Collector, you no longer have to jump between them, you can manage all your emails in one place – your GMX account!

What is the Mail Collector feature?

Mail Collector is a function within your GMX account that allows you to consolidate all your email accounts in one place for free. This means constantly having to log in and out of all your various accounts from different providers is a thing of the past. Instead, you can manage all of them directly from your GMX account and check all your emails from one place. This way, you enjoy universal access to all your communications, no matter where you are, or what device you’re using.

How it works: Organising email accounts

With the help of Mail Collector, your GMX account essentially works like a central hub for all your email accounts, including those from other providers. You can use Mail Collector to import these accounts into your GMX mailbox, and it will automatically retrieve your email history from that address. Much like other email clients, such as Outlook or Thunderbird, Mail Collector accesses the emails via POP3.

Once the feature is set up and your desired email address has been imported, Mail Collector will forward any new messages sent to that address to your GMX mailbox. This is not just a highly convenient way to gather all your emails in one place, Mail Collector also gives you the power to actively manage and organise your multiple email accounts. For example, you can set filter rules for incoming forwarded emails, save retrieved emails in separate folders, or even choose which email account to use when sending messages. Better still, forwarded emails are subject to high security standards, including SSL encryption and a spam filter.

Organising multiple email accounts: Step-by-step

Getting started with Mail Collector is a piece of cake – with just a few simple steps, you’ll be accessing all your email accounts in one place. Here’s how:

  • Log in to your GMX account then click on Settings.
  • Select Mail Collector from the options.
  • Enter the login details (address and password) of the email address you wish to import.
  • You will then be presented with some preference options, such as whether the new Mail Collector address should be used as the standard sender address. Select your preferences.
  • Hit save, and you’re done!

Editing or reconfiguring a Mail Collector mailbox you have already set up is also just as straightforward. Simply follow the first two steps above, click the wrench icon next to the Mail Collector address you wish to edit, and then you’ll be able to make the alterations you want.
