Both dotplex Cloud and the new dotplex Webmail provide you with state-of-the-art access to your dotplex mail account. Both are hosted as usual on our secure servers in the Berlin data centre.

An overview of all options to connect to your dotplex mail account via desktop device, mobile, app or browser can be found here.

dotplex Cloud

With dotplex Cloud based on Nextcloud, your dotplex mail account is extended with access to mail, calendar and address book that can be accessed from anywhere. Simply log in to https://dotplex.cloud in the browser of a desktop device, phone or tablet and all emails, contact data and appointments are readily available from anywhere. Once you have connected your mobile apps and desktop devices to dotplex Cloud, any changes to contacts or appointments will also be displayed and synchronised on all other connected devices. In the dotplex Cloud menu, you will also find the video chat solution Talk, which enables you to easily organise video conferences for smaller groups.

Smart storage allocation

The 10 gigabytes of storage space in your dotplex Mail account now also includes one gigabyte of cloud storage space. You can use this to sync with all your devices, for example to automatically push documents created on a laptop or photos taken on a smartphone to all your devices via dotplex Cloud, to keep them up to date or to share them with others. You can offer space for others to upload files, which you can then also open on your device. The 10 gigabytes of storage can be expanded and individually allocated to cloud and mail storage. Until this feature is available in the dotplex Dashboard, just send us an email.

dotplex Webmail

With a modern interface that is also suitable for browsers on mobile devices, the new dotplex Webmail based on Roundcube offers all classic email functions. Here you will also find an address book that is synchronised with dotplex Cloud and all connected devices. In the settings, you can create holiday notifications as well as automatic filters and sorting rules. Pre-sorting and filtering takes place directly on the dotplex mail servers. This way you will find your mails directly in your order on all devices.

Simply log in

If you have only received and sent mails with your dotplex mail account up to now, without using the address book or calendar in the webmail or on your devices, you do not need to do anything else: Simply log in with your email address and password at https://dotplex.cloud or at https://webmail.dotplex.com.

To move your contacts and appointments to dotplex Cloud, the previous webmail will remain online until 1 September 2021:

Address book and calendar

If your appointments and contacts appear in the previous webmail at mail.dotplex.com, please follow the section Migration from the previous webmail. If they do not appear in the webmail and you have synchronised calendars and contacts, e.g. with your mobile device or your email client directly via our WebDAV server, proceed as described under Migration from dotplex WebDAV server. You can then import the appointments and addresses into dotplex Cloud.

Migration from the previous webmail (mail.dotplex.com)

Until the current webmail is switched off on 1 September 2021, you still have the option of moving your appointments and contacts directly from the webmail. Autoresponders and filter rules are automatically transferred and do not need to be migrated by you. Personal settings and created identities must be set up again in dotplex Webmail.

How to migrate:

  • To back up your contacts and appointments, log in to mail.dotplex.com.
  • Go to "Contacts" and select the address book you want to move to dotplex Cloud under "Groups".
  • Select the first contact to highlight it.
  • To select all contacts, now click on the last contact at the end of the list while holding down the Shift key.
  • Clicking on "Export" saves them to the file "Contacts.vcf".
    If you have set up several address books, proceed in the same way and save them under a suitable name.
  • Now switch to the calendar view.
  • After clicking on "Export", select your calendar and the period of the appointments you want to move.
  • Click on "Export" to save.
  • Continue below with Import appointments and addresses into dotplex Cloud.

Migration from dotplex WebDAV server (dav.dotplex.com)

Calendars that are not registered in the previous webmail and that you have previously only used with your devices, clients and apps can be downloaded directly from the dotplex WebDAV server.

This is how you migrate:

  • Log in to https://dav.dotplex.com with your email address and password.
  • Click on "addressbooks" in turn, then on your email address and then on the little red book icon on the right to save the address book as a file. If you had set up other address books, you can find them to export on the same page.
  • Go back to https://dav.dotplex.com/ and click on "calendars" to export your calendar, click on your email address and then on the little red calendar icon on the right to save it as a file. If you had other calendars set up, you will find them listed on the same page.

You can also export calendars and address book directly as a file by replacing the email address mail@dotplex.com with your own address in the following URLs and then opening them in the browser:

https://dav.dotplex.com/addressbooks/mail@dotplex.com/default/?export
https://dav.dotplex.com/calendars/mail@dotplex.com/default/?export

Import calendars and contacts in dotplex Cloud

  • Log in to https://dotplex.cloud. If you are doing this for the first time, you will be greeted with a short introduction. You can close this and open it again later in the menu under "About".
  • Open Contacts in the menu at the top and click on "Settings", "Import contacts" at the bottom left.
  • Click on "Select local file" and open the "Contacts.vcf".
    • The contacts are saved in the Contacts app after this step.
      Proceed in the same way with other address books, if available.
  • Switch to Calendar in the menu at the top.
  • If you want to enter the appointments in a separate calendar, create it by clicking on "New calendar" and assign a name.
  • Then click on "Settings & Import" and "Import Calendar".
  • Open the previously exported calendar file.
  • In the next step, select one of the calendars in which the appointments are to be entered and then click on Import calendar.
    In the top right-hand corner, the result of the import is displayed, showing how many appointments have been entered.
  • After contacts and calendars have been moved, you can delete the old links and synchronisations to the WebDAV server in your apps and devices and then connect them to dotplex Cloud.

Sync calendar and address book with your devices and apps

Depending on the platform and device, you have various options for connecting your devices to the calendars and address books. Basically, you have to enter the following server data for each software:

Server URL https://dotplex.cloud
Username Your email address
Password Your email password or a dedicated app password*

* Before you activate Two-Factor Authentication like TOTP or passwordless authentication, create a dedicated app password in your dotplex Cloud security setting and use it to connect your synronisation clients.
