Where is GMX really based? (Germany/EU or USA/PRISM.)

Comment by Arkwright
about GMX and Gmail · Jan 2014

The exodus of internet/email users from the US of PRISM (and UK, GCHQ) is understandable. While the description here is that GMX is "German-based" when you look at the contact details it lists California.
Does anyone know whether GMX is subject to the same snooping laws as GMail and other US internet companies implicated in mass-snooping by Ed Snowden?

Stuck in the past

I used to think it was a good alternative in the past but the interface is kind of heavy/slow and the suggestions forum is practically abandoned. The development of improvements is very slow or doesn't exist at all.

I've been using gmx since the last millenium. Love their POP3 service (as I don't speak a word of german). Only downside is that they scrapped internationalization some time in the early 00s

OK. GMX is getting worse. Now, the Filters aren't working (no filters can be added), and the SPAM black/white lists also are showing problems.

Although it seemed like a great alternative to GMail etc, a number of people are getting frustrated with GMX:

- Maximum of 10 recipients if sendind mail via SMTP (apparently unlimited if via Webmail)
- Date format is only MM/DD/YYYY and can't be changed.
- Poor response to feature requests. The above have been requested two years ago, and no solutions yet.
