How to create an email account with GMX

GMX makes email easy – you can sign up in just a few steps. First, click the ‘Sign Up’ button on the GMX homepage. You will be asked to provide a few details such as your name, address, and date of birth. This personal data remains confidential – GMX will never share it with anyone else. Next, enter your desired email address (email id), consisting of a user name and domain name, and a secure password. Now complete the captcha security question and read and agree to the terms and conditions, then you’ll be ready to start enjoying your new free email account!

Manage all your email addresses together

When you sign up for an email account with us, you can create up to 10 alias email addresses. Best of all, you can manage all of them from just one email account. This makes it easy to separate private and business correspondence, and you decide which sender information the recipient will see. In addition, you can use our MailCheck browser add-on to access all your inboxes in just one click. And set up GMX Mail Collector to fetch your messages from different email accounts, even from some other email providers, so you can read and reply to all your messages in your GMX inbox.

Goodbye low file size limits, hello Cloud!


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. So 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 which you can also use to share files with your contacts. This may sound complicated, but like all features and tools provided by your GMX email, it is extremely easy and intuitive to use!

Can I create an email account without giving my phone number?


When you sign up for our email, GMX asks you to enter a mobile phone number for password recovery. We also encourage you to save an alternative email address in your email account’s Security Options. This gives us two secure ways to contact you – email or text message – if you need to recover your password. Please rest assured that GMX will not use your mobile phone number to contact you for any other reason or give this information to a third party. We are not in the business of selling personal data.
