Your GMX Mail Account Is Probably Not Beyond Recovery

Having a password really hard to guess is one thing; remembering that password is another.

Especially now that your browser seems to have lost its memory, too, is there a way to get back into GMX Mail? If you have set up a secondary email address—your work email account, for example, or another web-based email account; also protected by a strong password, of course—for your account, resetting your GMX Mail password is easy and painless.
