Don’t have a account yet? No worries: you can sign up right there in the app.

Automatic setup – no IMAP settings required

You may ask “Why not just use the preinstalled mail app on my phone?” But depending on your email provider, you may have to set up your email account manually – and who really wants to spend time finding the SMTP server name and configuring IMAP settings? With the app, all you have to do is log in and your inbox, address book, folders and cloud storage are instantly synchronized.

In addition to being easy and intuitive to set up and use, our Mail App offers four more great advantages – no matter if you have an Apple or Android device.

Integrated Cloud app

One of the first things you’ll notice in the app is that there’s not just an “Email” tab, but a “Cloud” tab as well. That’s right – all the photos, documents and folders in your Cloud can be accessed online in the app. Not only is your online storage always automatically synced between all devices where you log in, but you can even activate automatic photo backups of the pictures on your phone. You can use your phone’s sharing functions to share photos and files straight from your Cloud, or send them as email attachments or share links.

Secure email app

The Mail Apps are highly secure and offer the cutting-edge spam protection you expect from For extra mailbox security, you can activate the biometric fingerprint or facial ID lock function supported by your smartphone. Alternatively, on older devices you can create a 4-digit PIN to protect unauthorized access to your email and cloud storage. This gives you the peace of mind of knowing that even if your device is lost or stolen, your email account will remain safe.

The only email app you need

If you have more than one email account, you can use them both in our app. And if is your primary email provider, why not make our Mail App your default email app? This means our app becomes the go-to app on your phone for anything having to do with email. So “mailto” links will open in the Mail App rather than your phone’s preinstalled email app. In other words, no more switching back and forth!

Sign-up and upgrades directly in app

If you don’t have a email account yet, you can simply sign up after downloading the email app. Just tap “Register” and you can choose from our 100+ domains to create a customized email address. And app users who decide they’d like more cloud storage or additional Premium features will be happy to learn that our upgrades are available as in-app purchases in the app’s mail and cloud settings.
Pro tip: Scan documents with the app for iOS

Listing all the handy features of the apps would take us all day, but we’d like to share our personal favorite: the scan function in our Mail App for iOS. No need to fiddle around trying to get the perfect angle to take a photo of a document – scan it right in our app for a perfectly cropped and rotated PDF file you can save or share in a single tap. See our scanner explainer for detailed instructions.
