December 16, 2020

Folders are great tools to work with in email platforms as organizational containers of messages, so they do not get to be lying around or cluttering the inbox. In GMX Mail, users are able to create their own folders according to specific needs, as well as counting on with default containers that are very useful, which some of them are Trash, Sent and Draft folders.

In details, these folders can be used automatically by the platform to store messages respecting some actions, or can also be utilized by the user to save messages according to their requirements. This is how you can do it.
