Step Two

The management and organisation of emails

Order in your inbox
Using folders

All your folders and new emails are located on the left side of your inbox. It’s simple to make new folders with just one click and even change already-existing folders, like how long the storage time should be, for instance. Look in ‘Settings’ for an overview of the storage space used in all of your folders and the inbox.

How it works

Second email address
Making another email alias

If you need another email address because you’ve changed your name or own a small business, for example, then it’s easy to make a new email alias in your GMX mailbox for free. This means that new messages will still end up in your main inbox, regardless of which email address was used by your contacts. Make use of filter rules to automatically sort new emails into individual folders.

Secure access to your mailbox

Passwords can be forgotten or even lost, so a good idea is to use your mobile phone number as a recovery option. You can then easily reset your password if you need to make a new one.
