Alias Addresses

You can use different sender addresses at GMX. This can be useful if you do not want your main sender address to be shown in an e-mail.


You can create up to 10 e-mail addresses.

The Alias Addresses settings page displays all e-mail addresses (a) that have been created for your mailbox:

  • The GMX address you chose during registration
  • Any other e-mail addresses that belong to the email account being used to send the message


    For your security, it is no longer possible to use sender addresses that do not belong to the email account being used to send the message. This includes external email addresses that you have linked to your account through our Mail Collector tool as well as other linked email addresses.

You can also define any of these e-mail addresses as the default address (b) by clicking on the wrench icon next to the address. The default address is used as a sender address when you compose, reply to or forward an e-mail. You can also set the sender address for an individual e-mail.

Your sender name will be added to each e-mail you send out. When selecting the default address, you can set it so that your name is not sent with the e-mail by default (b). You can also prevent your name from being sent with an individual e-mail.

Alias Addresses

Changing an E-mail Address

Existing e-mail addresses cannot be changed. However, you can delete the e-mail address and create a new one.

If, for example, you have gotten married and changed your name, we recommend the following: Create a new GMX e-mail address with your new name and set it as the default address. Keep the old e-mail address until all your contacts use the new e-mail address. Then delete the old e-mail address.

Login and Password

You can log in with any e-mail address you have created for your e-mail account. Your GMX password applies for all addresses. If you need a separate password or a separate inbox, you have to register a new GMX e-mail account.

Deleting E-mail Addresses

If you delete an alias address, we cannot guarantee that the account will become available again.
