Integrating external calendars

If you are looking to integrate another calendar into your mail.com Organizer and then have it automatically updated, then join us for this deep dive into synchronizing your external calendars.

In your free email account, mail.com currently offers this feature for one external calendar of your choice. Our Premium accounts have the option of adding more than one calendar. Just follow the steps below to integrate a Google calendar or Outlook calendar into your mail.com Organizer:
  1. Go to your mail.com Organizer and start by selecting Organizer settings in the lower left corner of your screen
  2. Select Integrate external calendars in the context menu that appears
  3. Add the Calendar URL (see below) that you are integrating to your mail.com Organizer
  4. Specify your preferred calendar name and design color and save your changes by clicking Add
The newly added calendar will now appear under the Other calendars category in the general overview of your Organizer, and you should now have access to its appointments and reminders when you select this calendar to be visible.
