Tutanota login

  • Here you login to our mail client.
  • Please enter your full email address and password and click 'Log in'.
  • If you tick 'Store password', your password will be stored in the browser for easier login. Only choose this option if you are using your own device.
  • Click on 'More' to see more options. 'Sign up' to register a new account, 'Switch color theme' to switch to the dark theme (shown in the screenshot above), and 'Lost account access' to open a help article on how to recover your account.

Tutanota shortcuts

  • Tutanota supports lots of keyboard shortcuts. You can display all shortcuts available in any given section of Tutanota by pressing F1 (fn+F1). You can also use HTML shortcuts to design your mails such as Ctrl+b, Ctrl+i, Ctrl+u.
  • Show header info: You can show the email header of received emails by pressing H.
  • Tutanota strips headers from emails sent to protect your privacy.
  • If the technical sender is different from the header info, Tutanota warns you about this. The differing sender information could be a sign that this email is coming from a scammer.
如何在 Tutanota 中设置双因素认证(2FA)?

请注意:2FA仅在新的Tutanota客户端(https://mail.tutanota.com)可使用,目前您无法将2FA用于Tutanota Android和iOS应用程序。将在未来几个月内添加对应用程序中对2FA的支持。不需要在您的帐户中设置2FA,但如果您想要额外安全性所带来的安心,建议您使用。注册您的第二验证因素您可以在“设置” - >“登录”中将您的第二验证因素与Tutanota连接起来。作为管理员,您可以在“设置” - >“用户管理”中为您的用户设置第二验证因素.Tutanota目前支持以下第二验证因素类型:安全密钥(U2F),例如Yubikey。 U2F目前由Chrome和Opera支持。 TOTP与身份验证程序,如Google身份验证器,Authy等。我们计划支持更多的第二验证因素类型的软件或插件。请通过社交媒体告诉我们您喜欢的内容!管理员和“普通”用户可以添加第二验证因素,但只能由管理员删除。*注意:如果您丢失了第二验证因素,您将无法再登录到您的帐户。为防止这种情况,您可以添加多个第二验证因素。我们还会添加一个重置帐户的选项,以防您在不久的将来丢失密码或第二验证因素。** ##使用您的第二验证因素进行身份验证登录时,您必须使用其中一个验证因素进行身份验证。相反,您也可以从另一个登录的客户端接受该会话。如果您的浏览器不支持您注册的第二验证因素,则您只能接受来自其他客户端的会话。



也请记住正确的用户名及域名结尾(.de 或者 .com)。



If you own one or more domain names that you want to use with Tutanota, you can add these domains to your paid subscription of Tutanota. The setup wizard for your custom email domain will guide you through the process in just four small steps. In each step the wizard will explain, which configuration changes you have to make. If you don't have a Tutanota account, you can register here.

The setup wizard for your custom email domain can be found in 'Settings' -> 'Global settings' -> 'Custom email domains' by clicking the '+' button.

In order to send and receive emails with your custom domain in Tutanota, you need to configure the following types of DNS records in the settings of your domain name provider. Prior to configuring those DNS records the wizard will allow you to create new users or email aliases for your custom domain in order to have a smart switch to receiving emails in Tutanota.

  • a TXT record to prove that you are the owner of the domain
  • an MX record with any priority
  • a TXT record for SPF
  • CNAME records (_domainkey) for DKIM
  • CNAME records for MTA-STS
  • a TXT record (_dmarc) for DMARC is recommended

The exact values that these DNS records should point to will be shown to you in the setup wizard.

The MX record is necessary to relay emails for your domain to the Tutanota servers. The SPF TXT record marks the Tutanota server as valid sender of emails from your domain. The _domainkey and _dmarc records make sure your emails are signed with DKIM and sender spoofing of your domain's email addresses can be detected automatically by the recipient mail servers. The MTA-STS records make sure that transport encryption and authentication is used between different mail servers.

Tutanota will indicate if the DNS records are fine for all your domains or if there is something that has to be changed.

Please note that with some domain name providers it may take up to a few hours before changes to your DNS records become visible for other mail servers. You can check your DNS settings here.


3.在“设置” -> “扩展”中添加您的域名,您也可以在此先找到如何配置MX DNS的条目信息,以便于将收到的SMTP邮件转到Tutanota服务器。
4.在“设置” -> “用户管理”中给您的域名添加用户账户(邮箱),如果用户数量较多,可用导入包含用户名,邮件地址(,亦可预置密码)的CSV文件的方式,这样就能一步创建所有用户账户。


How to book Secure Connect?

To book the encrypted contact form Secure Connect, you need to:

Journalists can apply for a free usage of Secure Connect. NPOs can get the business version of Tutanota at half price which includes Premium, whitelabel and Secure Connect.

How to send an encrypted message via Secure Connect?

When someone starts to communicate with you via the encrypted contact form Secure Connect, the entire communication will be encrypted end-to-end. Encryption takes place locally in the browser so that no third party - not even we as the provider of Secure Connect - can access this information.

Here is how to start an encrypted communication channel via Secure Connect:

  1. Click on Create Request.
  2. Enter a subject line.
  3. Choose a password and repeat the password. In case you want to check for replies later, write down the password somewhere safe.
  4. Enter your message.
  5. Drag and drop files into the message field or click on the symbol in the top right corner to attach files. They are automatically attached to the message.
  6. In case you want to be notified about replies, enter an email address at the end. This is optional. If you want to stay anonymous we recommend not entering an email address here.
  7. Click on Send in the top right corner.
  8. A random email address for your encrypted communication channel has been created. Write down this email address (and the previously chosen password) to re-access your encrypted communication channel later.

While sending the encrypted message via Secure Connect, Tutanota automatically creates a mailbox for the sender with an automatically generated email address of your whitelabel domain. The sender can login with the selected password to read your reply and also reply again. With Secure Connect an encrypted communication channel has been established that is both easy to use and secure.










Updating WebView is usually as simple as installing an app. For devices with Android older than Nougat, this is usually the app called Android System WebView, which you can download from the PlayStore here.

Additional optional settings changes

The Android N default WebView is usually tied to the Chrome browser. If you don't want to install Chrome, you can install another provider and later select another WebView implementation in the developer settings.

To enable developer settings:

  • Open up your Settings app.
  • Scroll all the way down to find “About Phone” (or “About Tablet”)
  • Scroll down again and find the entry with the Build number.
  • Start tapping on the “Build number section”, Android will now pop up a message informing you that in x amount of clicks you will become a Developer. Keep tapping until the process is complete.

Some of the apps providing WebView are:

Note for LeEco device owners: LeEco made changes to some devices which prevents changing WebView. We don't know of a workaround, yet. We recommend using the web browser to access your Tutanota mail account.

When you order the whitelabel feature, you have two options: The whitelabel feature is already included in the Pro subscription. Alternatively, you can order it separately in your paid account. Your whitelabel domain can be any subdomain, and might look like 'secure.mycompany.com' or 'email.mycompany.com'. In order to setup your whitelabel domain you must be able to set the CNAME DNS entry of that domain.

How to whitelabel your secure Tutanota mailbox for business use


  • 'Status': Click the pen symbol to activate the whitelabel feature for your Tutanota account.
  • 'Custom notification emails': Click the plus symbol to add a custom notification email for external recipients. When configuring the custom notification email, the admin can add a {sender} placeholder in both subject and body of the email to include the sender name. The admin must include a {link} placeholder in the body of the email where the link to the encrypted mailbox of the external recipient is automatically being added.
  • 'Whitelabel domain': Click the pen symbol to activate the whitelabel feature for your own domain. A pop-up shows up where you have to enter the following information (shown in the screenshots):

Activate whitelabel automatic

Activate whitelabel manual

  • Choose a subdomain of your own domain, at which you would like to reach the Tutanota login. This must be a subdomain, a main domain is technically not allowed. Create the subdomain by setting the CNAME DNS entry for that domain to point to login.tutanota.com at your domain hoster. The DNS entry should look like this: '< subdomain_name > CNAME login.tutanota.com'. Depending on your domain hoster you might have to set the fields 'name' to '< subdomain_name >', 'type' to 'CNAME' and 'value' to 'login.tutanota.com'. Keep in mind that the DNS changes may take a while until propagated.

  • Enter this subdomain under 'Whitelabel domain'.

  • 'Certificate type': Click on the pen symbol and choose 'Automatic (Let's Encrypt)'. Certificates for your domain will be issued and updated automatically.

  • 'Certificate type': Click on the pen symbol and choose 'Manual'. You need to get and update certificates for your own domain manually.

    • Upload your domain's SSL certificate chain and

    • your domain's private key to enable the Tutanota login at your domain. Both must be provided in PEM format (base64 encoded). The private key file content must start with the line "-----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY-----" or "-----BEGIN PRIVATE KEY-----". The certificate file content must start with the line "-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----". In order to create a certificate chain from individual certificates create a file in a text editor. Then first copy your domain's certificate into that file and below that certificate any intermediate certificate or certificate bundle that was provided to you in addition to your certificate file. Your certificate chain file might then look like this:

      -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
      (Your SSL certificate, e.g. from your_domain_name.crt)
      -----END CERTIFICATE-----
      -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
      (Your intermediate SSL certificate, e.g. from intermediate.crt)
      -----END CERTIFICATE-----

Whitelabel domain customizations

  • 'Custom logo': Click the pen symbol to upload your logo. It will be shown in the top left corner (38x280 pixel) when you load Tutanota at your own domain.

Custom colors

  • 'Custom colors': Click the pen symbol to set the colors according to your own corporate design. If you don't set a color, the default color from the Tutanota style sheet will be taken.
  • 'Custom meta tags': Click the pen symbol to enter a meta tag: You can enter HTML code here to add a headline, text and a favicon.
  • 'Link to imprint': Here you can add a link to your Imprint.
  • 'Link to privacy policy': Here you can add a link to your Privacy Policy.
  • 'German language file': Here you can switch between the formal and the informal form of address ("Sie" instead of "du", only available for German).

Now you can open your custom domain in your browser and see the Tutanota login with your customizations. Please note that the customizations for your whitelabel domain are not visible in the Tutanota mobile apps and in the Tutanota desktop clients.


Secure Connect - encrypted contact forms

Secure Connect - our encrypted contact forms allow you to be contacted confidentially as all messages are automatically end-to-end encrypted.

Create a new contact form

  • Click on 'Create contact form' on top of the list of contact forms. A pop-up shows up which lets you create a new contact form.

Create contact forms

  • 'Receiving mailbox': Click the user symbol (left) to select one user who should receive all emails sent via the contact form.
  • 'Responsible Persons': If you do not enter anything here, contact requests can be passed on to all users on your domain by the receiving mailbox.
  • 'Path': Enter a path to the link where your contact form should be displayed.
  • 'Language': Click the three-dot symbol to add another language to your contact form (e.g. French, German, Spanish). Visitors of your website will automatically see the language defined in their browser settings. Once you have added another language, a cross symbol appears so that you can delete any language you do not need anymore.
  • 'Page title': Enter a title for your contact form to be displayed on the website. A page title needs to be entered for all added languages.
  • 'Header', 'Footer', 'Help page': You can enter three different text fields either in rich text format or as HTML source code. You can switch between rich text and HTML by clicking on the pen symbol to the right. The entered text will be displayed on the contact form on your website.

The people making contact form requests on your website will have the option to provide their own private email address to which they will receive a notification when you respond, informing them that there is a message in their secure mailbox. To ensure that these notifications can be sent, make a TXT Record in the DNS settings for your whitelabel domain, with the value "v=spf1 include:spf.tutanota.de -all". They will still be able to communicate securely without this, but the notifications may not be received.

Manage existing contact forms

  • Click the contact form you want to manage.
  • Click the pen symbol to the right to edit this form. The pop-up shown above opens. You can manage all fields described under 'Create a local admin group'.
  • Click the copy symbol to copy this form. A new contact form pops up where you can change all required fields shown under 'Create a local admin group'. At least the 'Path' and the 'Receiving mailbox' must be changed as the new form must have its own web link and its own recipient.
  • Click the delete symbol to delete this contact form.
  • Click the Export button further down to export a CSV log of all contact form requests in a given period of time.
  • The global admin can create a local admin group to add as well as manage administrators of users and contact forms. Please refer to 'Create a local admin group' for details.
  • The user who creates another user or contact form becomes the administrator of the created entity. More precisely, the admin group in which the user is member will become the admin of the entity. If the user is a global admin, then the entity is administrated by the global admins. If the user is a local admin (i.e. member of a local admin group), then that local admin group becomes the admin.
  • The global admin can change the administrator of a user by selecting a local admin group under 'Administrated by'.
  • Local administrators only see those users and contact forms that they administrate.
  • Even if an entity is administrated by a local admin group, the global admins can still administrate the entity.
  • A contact form is always administrated by the administrator of its receiving mailbox. So if a global admin changes the receiving mailbox of a contact form, the admin of this user mailbox becomes the administrator of the contact form.


  • Click on 'Upgrade' to upgrade your free Tutanota account to Premium, Teams or Pro. Look at the screenshot below to view the upgrading process.

Linux:下载然后右键点击AppImage以给予它运行权限。或者,您也可以在终端中使用命令chmod +x tutanota-desktop-linux.AppImage。之后应用将像其他可执行文件一样使用,不需要进一步的安装。您也可以把它整合进您的桌面或者启动器。


Windows: Go to Settings -> Desktop -> set "Default Email Handler" to "Registered". Then hit the Windows key, type "default" and choose "Default App Settings". In the settings window, choose "Tutanota Desktop" in the email row.

Mac: Go to the Settings -> Desktop -> set "Default email handler" to "Registered".

Linux: This depends on your distribution. Please refer to the relevant documentation. Useful keywords are "mailto handler", "protocol handler"

On all platforms, you may have to tell applications like your internet browser to use the system default mail app.


Sometimes the browser does not recognize the newly installed Tutanota desktop client as the default mailto app. If clicking a mailto-link does not open an email in the desktop client, please make sure that the Tutanota desktop client is activated as the default email app in your system settings as described above.

If everything is set up correctly, these instructions might help to troubleshoot:


  • Enter "about:preferences" in the address field.
  • Go to "Applications" -> mailto set to "Tutanota Desktop" or "Standard"
  • Enter "about:config" in the address field
  • Set "network.protocol-handler.expose.mailto = true"
  • Set "network.protocol-handler.external.mailto = true"


  • Enter "chrome://settings/handlers" in the address field
  • Deactivate all handlers for emails

How can I receive notifications with the desktop client?

You need to activate the 'Run in background' option to receive notifications from the desktop client. This option appears in your notification area on Windows and in the Tray on Linux.

When it is active, the desktop client will not terminate when all windows are closed and instead remain in the background to provide desktop notifications in case of incoming email or calendar alarms.

If you can't see the tray icon on Linux despite the app running and the 'Run in background' option being set to 'Yes', please refer to your distribution's documentation to enable tray icons or AppIndicators. On MacOS, this option is not visible, and the dock icon is always used to provide a context menu.


Windows: Hit the windows key, type "apps", choose the entry "Apps & Features". In the settings window, search for "Tutanota Desktop". Click it and then click the "Uninstall" Button.

Mac: Right-click the Application in the Applications folder and select "Move to bin". To remove the app cache as well, you need to delete the directory ~/Library/Application Support/tutanota-desktop/, for example via the terminal:

cd ~/Library/Application\ Support/
rm -r ./tutanota-desktop


  • Delete the AppImage, then delete the file ~/.local/share/applications/appimagekit-tutanota-desktop.desktop and the directory ~/.config/tutanota-desktop/ if they're present.

  • If you want to remove the icons, too, open a terminal window and type

    cd ~/.local/share/icons/hicolor/
    ls **/*/appimagekit-tutanota-desktop.png
  • Make sure the output only lists tutanota-desktop image files, then type

    rm  -i **/*/appimagekit-tutanota-desktop.png
