Today in our comparison to G-Mail we look at GMX.
Overall a nifty webmail service with just a few drawbacks.
+ Slick interface. It looks like a mail app like Thunderbird or Outlook but it’s all web-based.
– But it all opens in a new window, not a new tab.
– And you can’t stay logged in all day unless you leave the window up all day which leads to being caught by bosses.
/ Aliasing is kind of a toss-up. You can have 10 GMX addresses under one account but only one name. Also, you can’t alias as another e-mail address unless that service allows you to download your mail to GMX through POP.
+ Forwarding to other addresses is available.
+ No ads in the tagline.
+ Decent user forum with feedback from GMX
– Doesn’t work in all browsers
Bottom Line: Awesome free service except for a few minor details and to be fair they are in Beta. Still not G-Mail
Trench’s Rating: 4 out of 5. Almost as good if not better than G-Mail but just misses the mark.
