In order to send mail through a GMX Mail account, you have to know the outgoing SMTP server settings. These settings are typically filled in automatically through the email client, but if they are not, you need to enter them.

You can access your GMX Mail email account from any browser, but you may prefer to access it in a different email program for convenience. When this is the case, your email client needs to know how to access mail from your GMX Mail account, which is done through IMAP and POP3 server settings.

All email providers use SMTP server settings, but they aren't the same as GMX Mail's server settings.
