Tired of checking for new emails through multiple sources and accounts? Surely, you think, there must be an easier way to stay on top of your messages – preferably one that doesn’t require you to log in with your password every single time! And there is: MailCheck by mail.com provides quick access to your inbox(es) in a hassle-free process that requires almost no effort on your part. Find out how to set up email notifications in your browser in just a few easy steps.
 

What is MailCheck?

MailCheck is mail.com’s browser extension that allows instant email notifications to be generated in your browser whenever a new email arrives in your inbox. You can even customize the notifications to include sound. By simply installing the add-on, you have access to new messages directly in your browser toolbar, all easily retrieved with a single click. The one-click email login can be set up simultaneously for multiple accounts – and not just for email addresses from mail.com.

How do I install MailCheck?

mail.com currently offers the browser extension feature for the following browsers: Chrome, Firefox and Microsoft Edge. The installation process only takes a few easy steps:
  1. Start the installation process by simply clicking on your browser type on the mail.com MailCheck page.
  2. Agree to the installation.
  3. Enter your mail.com email address and password – in other words, perform one full login. Don’t worry, you won’t have to go through this step every time you need access to the MailCheck feature.

  1. Click the envelope icon to access all your unread emails. Clicking on an email will open it in your account inbox with no further login required. You can also write a new email by clicking the icon to the right of your email address. 
  2. To customize the settings of this newly installed feature or to add additional email accounts for easy access, click the gear symbol in the lower right corner.

Create email aliases to use different addresses in the same account

When you send, reply to, or forward an email, sometimes you don’t want the recipient to see your primary email address. An email account with alias addresses allows you to create multiple email addresses and customize the sender address of your messages. This means you have complete control over what the recipients of your emails can see – and can quickly and easily send personal and business emails from the same mailbox. You don’t have to switch between accounts (and memorize or save multiple passwords), and you can set the sender address that you use most often as your default address. mail.com lets you have up to 10 email addresses in a single account, and our extensive list of over 200 domains means that you can customize your alias addresses according to your personal and professional needs. more
