If you are using email addresses gmail and GMXMail checking email in both places can be inconvenient. Luckily, you can set up Gmail to receive GMX email messages (and even send them from your gmx.com address) from Gmail. So you can use both services from only one interface. Gmail can even automatically apply a label to all of your GMX mail messages so they’re all in the same place in Gmail, leaving your inbox uncluttered.
