GMX Spam Filter
applies seven sophisticated anti-spam modules which work hand-in-hand to provide a nearly leak-proof spam barrier. You hardly need to configure anything.
We implement several modules, such as the Header Analyzer
, Spam Server Blocker
, GMX Anti-Spam List
and Global Anti-Spam List
, which automatically do the spam-filtering job for you.
And if that's not enough, you also get your personal Black
so you can adapt your spam protection to suit your personal needs. Just activate the spam filter in the Spam settings.

One anti-spam module, our Text Pattern Profiler
, is especially optimized to analyze e-mails sorted into your spam folder. Over time, it learns to successfully identify unwanted e-mails and to divert them accordingly. The Header Analyzer
examines the header of each incoming e-mail for errors commonly made by spammers while the Spamserver Blocker module
blocks e-mails with sender addresses of large e-mail providers that were not routed via one of the provider's mail servers.
If an unwanted mail happens to slip through, you can click on the Spam button and the system will automatically learn to block it.
And the other way around, if a valid mail is marked as spam you can click on the No Spam button.
Now, some e-mails are especially difficult to identify as spam. For such cases, you can always use your personal black and whitelist to permanently block emails from specific senders or domains.
All e-mail addresses in the blacklist are treated as spam. You may even enter complete domains into this list. For example, if you enter @biz.com, all e-mail addresses ending in "@biz.com" are treated as spam.
If e-mails were mistakenly filtered out as spam, you can add the return addresses to the Whitelist
. All e-mails from addresses in this list are never treated as spam. You may even enter complete domains into this list. For example, if you enter @gmx.com, all e-mail addresses ending in "gmx.com" are exempt from the spam filter.
You can edit your Black/Whitelist settings via Settings> Security> Spam Protection
Please note that when using the "Spam" button, the system learns
to recognize which emails are spam and which ones are valid. You may have to use this a few times before the spam filters are able to identify spam messages correctly.
If you receive spam emails from GMX.COM accounts directly, please don't hesitate to report them to use, including the full messages headers, at firstname.lastname@example.org
