Leaving a Copy in the Mailbox

Depending on the settings, your emails will be retrieved through POP3 without leaving a copy in your GMX mailbox. Edit the settings if you want to keep copies.

Info:

The free GMX Mail App is a much more convenient way to check your emails on your smartphone or tablet. You can download the GMX Mail App for Android from the Google PlayStore or for iOS from the Apple App Store.

If you retrieve your emails through POP3, the messages will be collected in the Inbox folder. No copies of emails are kept in your webmail mailbox.
