What does Drive Client have to offer?
OX Drive Client allows you to conveniently access your mailbox.org Drive from your Windows PC, Mac, or smartphone (Android or iOS). Drive Client syncs your files on all devices, thereby ensuring that you can view or edit your text documents, photos, or other files wherever you are. As a practical extra feature, you can take snapshots using your smartphone or tablet and immediately store them on your mailbox.org Drive.
Where can I download Drive Client?
Drive Client is available for Windows, Mac OS X, Android, and iOS systems.
If you are working with Linux, WebDAV allows you to access data directly, meaning you don’t need Drive Client.
The Drive Client can be easily installed after logon to the mailbox.org online office.
Click on the round button on the top right and then select "Connect your Device".
Then choose your operating system (MacOS X, Android or Windows) and click on "Drive Application" and then on "Download" below.

How do I configure Drive Client?
This is extremely easy. Simply launch Drive Client on your device, and you will be guided step-by-step through the process. Enter the following access data for your mailbox.org Drive:
- Server URL:
- User name: Your mailbox.org login name (for example, firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Password: Your mailbox.org password
You will be asked during setup if you want to sync all or only certain files with your device and if you want to activate the Photostream function. If Photostream is enabled, all snapshots will from this point on be immediately stored on your mailbox.org Drive (as soon as a network connection is available). You can change these settings at any time in the future.
Note: Downloading Drive Client will use up a fair amount of data on your data plan. Depending on your data plan, this may involve additional fees or charges from your mobile communications provider. Alternatively, you can also a Wi-Fi connection.
Notes on Photostream: Once you have enabled this feature, you may at first not be able to locate the photos on your mailbox.org Drive. They are ‘hidden’ in the ‘Photostream’ subfolder and you may need to expand the folder structure to find them.
Notes on iOS: Photostream is currently not working with iOS.
