Manage all your email addresses together

At GMX, we want to make your email experience easier, without compromising on functionality. Therefore, when you sign up for an email account with us, we allow you to create up to 10 alias email addresses. Best of all, you can manage all of them from just one email account. This way, you can easily separate private and business correspondence, while determining which sender information the recipient will see. In addition, you can make use of MailCheck in order to access all your inboxes in just one click.

Say goodbye to low file size limits


If you’ve had a free email address from other providers in the past, you’re probably well accustomed to a classic problem: file size limits. At GMX, we understand how irritating it is to have to use another service just to send a few pictures or music to friends and family. Therefore, our free email accounts have a generous 50 MB attachment limit.

Need to send an even larger file? No problem, simply use the cloud file sharing feature that’s included when you create an email account with us. GMX Cloud gives you 2 GB of free, secure storage space, from which you can easily share files with your contacts. Therefore, no matter what you want to share with friends or colleagues, there’s always a way with GMX!
