Step Two

Organizing and managing your emails

Order in your inbox

To the left of your inbox, you’ll see all your folders and the new emails you’ve received. You can create new folders with just one click, as well as edit existing folders, for example, if you want to change the storage time. Look in your ‘Settings’ for a complete summary of the storage space used in your folders and overall inbox.

How it works

Second email address
Email alias

If you require an additional email address (if your name has changed, business account, etc.), it’s simple to create a new free email alias in your GMX mailbox. Regardless of which email address is used by your contacts, new emails will still end up in your inbox. You can use filter rules to automatically sort emails into different folders.
