The web mail scene has been dominated by either Gmail, Yahoo! Mail or Windows Hotmail for quite some time now. Although there have been many other web-based email systems who have tried to enter the fray, none has been successful as of yet. So it would seem that GMX Global Mail Exchange may be up to a tough task of getting into the web mail niche.
GMX Global Mail Exchange aims to provide an alternative web mail solution for home users as well as small and medium sized enterprises. It’s your typical web based email that supports POP3, IMAP and SMTP protocols and mobile devices. GMX also allows you to create up to 10 additional emails that all forward and can be checked from your main account, which is a nice way to keep your main email address a little more private. If you notice too much junk or spam from one of your alternates simply delete it and start with a new one.
To cut the long story short, what does GMX has to offer to users that would make differentiate it from the leaders Google, Yahoo and Windows Mail? Unfortunately, there’s nothing much. GMX Global Mail Exchange touts itself as the best free web mail client. It has every right to call itself so. It boasts a gigantic mailbox with a maximum capacity of 5GB of which 1GB can be used to as a virtual hard drive to store files such as text, photos, music or videos. Yahoo Mail has unlimited storage space. Gmail has around 10GB and Hotmail has 5GB.
GMX also promises of superior spam protection as well as professional anti-virus protection. We can only prove this true if when we actually start using GMX. But first, the basic question must be answered, and that is do we need another web-based email system? It’s your call. You may want to give it a spin and see if its suit your needs. As for me, I’m satisfied with Gmail and I don’t think I would be using another web mail client in the near future.
