Try something else than GMX, like gmail or something like that.

Looks like GMX is triggering some filters.

If you look at the blocked URL provided - http://www.spamcop.net/w3m?action=blche ... .227.17.20

It appears the IP address you have has been reported for spam quite a bit over the last week. This is why both of your email addresses appear to be blocked. They're not, it's your IP address that's setting the blacklist flag. Usually these blocks only last about 24 hours, however if they persist to receive spam from specific IP addresses they can become more permanent.

Do you know if your assigned IP is dynamic or static? If it's dynamic you can probably power down your modem for a few hours and when you plug it back in you'll have a new IP address assignment. The other thing I suggest you do is scan your system to ensure you don't have a trojan spamming in the background. The best way to catch a trojan is with anti-virus service that has a port scanner. There's a pretty good free one online via http://housecall.trendmicro.com/.If you have multiple computers on your connection, scan all of your Windows computers, in addition if you have wireless ensure you're using the WPA2 encryption standard as well.

Last but not least it says at the bottom of the spamcop.net URL that you can dispute the listing and there's an additional link you click on and fill out some info. You should do that as well.

OK, I still have no clue. No malware etc. I sent the TRNs from GMX-Webclient.

Sounds like GMX's web client works the same way as GMail's and doesn't record the IP.

Meanwhile I suggest challenging the blockage via the link they provided.

It is not you that are blocked, it is your mail provider GMX. Use an alternative mail provider.
