GMX is a free professional email provider that allows business owners and their employees to create and manage business email addresses with up to 65 GB of email storage.


GMX is an entirely free email service, so there is no pricing information to report.


Pros: Ample inbox storage. No fees.

Cons: Inbox ads make it cluttered and overwhelming.

Bottomline: GMX is a functional free email service, but it does not have the same level of support and performance as popular platforms like Gmail.

Last time I tried GMX email, none of my emails were getting out.

I've tried GMX but the service is unreliable and my VPN provider says they have configured their services so they can't be white listed, meaning I'd have to disconnect from the VPN to send emails which defeats the whole purpose.

I use GMX as my primary email and have no problems at all.
