    Dregg, With the knowledge you have gathered here, you could easily write Security Wikipedia and be an Guru :p .

    BTW, if you are looking primary security and privacy wouldn't the "privacy software" sub-forum above be good choice for this question?

    Hi pinga, GMX looks cool so I've made an account.

    But why doesn't it use ssl by default like gmail? I mean gmail uses https whenever you try to log in while GMX uses http only by default. Guess I've missed something here.

    Am I the only one that had problems with the gmx webpage being oversized?
    I couldn't access all of the buttons on the bottom.
    Other than that, I like gmx a lot.

    I see. That's why I ask if it's better to use https by default.

    I would yes, it eliminates MITM situations and better security/privacy. The only real downside is https is slower than regular http but that's a good trade off for added piece of mind.

    Unfortunately, I am unable to click links in email messages using GMX.com.
    This is a known issue that still has not been fixed.

    I'm still curious. The forum really doesn't serve its purpose when an OP asks a specific question and the OP responds that they got their answer but doesn't provide the info. That's more like a PM system.

    Who did you select? Why? What makes it more secure than another? Without these answers shared (this is a forum!), the original post serves nobody other than the OP.

    Spread the info around! :)

    I am also eager to know which webmail provider did the OP choose?
