If you're using both Gmail and GMX Mail email addresses, you may find checking email in both places inconvenient. Fortunately, you can set up Gmail to retrieve your GMX email messages (and even send from your gmx.com address) from within Gmail. In this way, you can use both services from just one interface. Gmail can even apply a label automatically to all your GMX Mail messages so they're all in one place within Gmail, leaving your Inbox uncluttered.

Access GMX Mail in Gmail

To set up POP access to a GMX Mail account in Gmail:

  1. Log into your Gmail account.
