GMX Mail provides users with unlimited storage combined with an easy-to-use email interface. The free email client permits attachments up to 50MB and includes a robust spam filter and advanced anti-virus capabilities. Although many GMX Mail users access their mail solely through the web interface, mobile device users can access GMX mail on their devices through the email program they use there. To do that, you need the GMX Mail IMAP server settings for accessing GMX Mail messages and folders from another email program.
