IMAP GMX com not responding

You can configure your GMX mail account on an email client like Outlook using either IMAP or POP. However, you might come across issues with IMAP on your GMX account. This might occur if the IMAP server settings are not configured correctly. When you have the IMAP server not responding, you won’t receive any new email messages on your email account.
