FAQs: Email in one place

How do I use Mail Collector to check multiple email accounts from one place?

Our Mail Collector feature lets you manage your email all in one account. If you don’t yet have a mail.com account, first create one to serve as your primary email account for Mail Collector. You can then enter your email addresses and passwords from other services under > Mail Collector in your secure mail.com inbox. Now incoming emails from those accounts will automatically be retrieved and forwarded to your mail.com account. This process is extremely secure: Emails are retrieved with SSL encryption and checked for spam. In addition, you can use filter rules to sort the collected emails.

How do I import contacts from my other email accounts?

The first step is to log in to your old email account and export your contacts there. You will find instructions for transferring contacts from Outlook and Yahoo in your mail.com account under > Contacts > Import Contacts. For detailed instructions on exporting contacts in Google, Apple or other email service providers, please see their websites or the mail.com Help Center. 

In most cases, your contacts will be exported in one of the following file formats:

  •     vcf, e.g. mail.com, GMX, Apple, Google
  •     csv, e.g. Outlook, Windows Mail
  •     ldif, e.g. Thunderbird

Save this file wherever you like on your computer. Now, in your mail.com account go to > Contacts > Import Contacts > Import from file. Select the file you wish to import and click > Upload.

How do I move my online calendar to my mail.com account?

All mail.com email accounts feature the Organizer, a free online planner. You can synchronize the mail.com Organizer with any calendar applications that support the CalDAV standard. It is also easy to transfer appointments from a calendar application to the mail.com Organizer as long as this application supports exports in the "iCalendar" (.ics) format.

You will find detailed instructions on importing, exporting, and synchronizing your mail.com Organizer in our Help Center. 

How do I upload files to the Cloud?

When you are logged in to your mail.com account in your internet browser, you can simply drag and drop files from your computer into the mail.com Cloud. Or you can click > Cloud > Upload to upload individual files or entire folders. 

In the mail.com iOS app, tap > Cloud to open your online storage and then the “+” symbol in the upper right corner to upload photos or scan documents.
