Login, Atalhos & informação de cabeçalho

Tutanota login

  • Here you login to our mail client.
  • Please enter your full email address and password and click login.
  • 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 and 'Switch color theme' to switch to the dark theme (shown in the screenshot above).
  • If you have saved your password, you will see two more options under 'More': 'Different account' to login with another Tutanota email address and 'Delete credentials' to delete the password you have previously saved in the browser.

Tutanota shortcuts

  • Tutanota supports lots of 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 mail is coming from a scammer.
Configurando a autenticação de dois fatores (2FA) em Tutanota

We recommend setting up 2FA because of its security benefits. Learn in our online security guide how 2FA helps you to keep your emails safe from hackers.

Registering your second factor

You can connect your second factor with Tutanota in Settings -> Login. As admin you can setup second factors for your users in Settings -> User management.

Tutanota currently supports the following second factor types:

  • Security keys (U2F), e.g. Yubikey. U2F is currently supported by Chrome and Opera.
  • TOTP with an authenticator app such as FreeOTP+, andOTP, Authenticator, Authy etc. If setting up a second factor with TOTP fails, please make sure that the time is synced between your devices.
  • We plan to support more second factor types. Please let us know via social media which ones you prefer!

Second factors can be added by administrators and "normal" users, but removed only by admins.

Note: If you lose your second factor, you will no longer be able to login to your account. To prevent this, you can add multiple second factors and additionally note down the recovery code shown to you when adding a second factor.

Authenticating with your second factor

During login you have to authenticate with one of your second factors. Instead, you may also accept that session from another logged in client. If your browser does not support the second factor you had registered, you can only accept the session from another client.

How to reset your second factor if you lose it

For resetting your second factor, you will need your personal recovery code and your password. You can view and also update your recovery code in Settings -> Login.

If you have lost your second factor, click on More -> Lost account access on the login page. There you will have to enter your recovery code as well as your password to delete all your second factors.

Como posso reiniciar minha senha ou segundo fator?

When you create a new Tutanota account, our secure password reset feature empowers only you to reset your account yourself. Please make sure that:

  • You write your password down and keep it somewhere safe.
  • You write down your recovery code to never lose access to your Tutanota account.

In case you can't login to Tutanota, please make sure that:

  • You have entered your email address with the correct ending, e.g. ".de" or ".com".
  • The caps lock key is disabled.
  • The time on your TOTP device is synchronized correctly (only applies if second factor authentication with TOTP fails).

We do not know your password and can't modify your second factors. However, there are different ways on how to regain access to your mailbox in case of a lost password or a second factor.

Administrator is available

If you are a member of an organization or a business: Ask your administrator to reset your password. Each administrator can reset the passwords of other users and admins. If you want to make sure to never lose your Premium account, it's best to have at least two administrators.

Recovery code is available

Your recovery code is your personal code to resetting your account. If you did write it down when you created your account, you can reset your password or second factor using your personal recovery code by clicking on More > Lost account access on the login page.

You can view and also update your recovery code in Settings > Login. You can also find more information on this secure reset feature on our blog.

With 2FA enabled, you will need 2 out of 3 to reset your Tutanota account:

Click here to reset your password. You will need your second factor (if 2FA enabled) and your recovery code.

Click here to reset your second factor. You will need your login password and the recovery code.

Please note: If you lose your password and your second factor, there is no option to reset your Tutanota account with the recovery code.

Adicionando domínios personalizados

If you own one or more domain names that you want to use with Tutanota, you can add these domains to your Tutanota Premium or Pro account. Afterwards you can add email aliases and additional user accounts for your family or company with this domain.

To use your own domain, a Tutanota Premium account is required. You can upgrade your existing, free Tutanota account by clicking on "Premium" in the top menu. If you don't have a Tutanota account, you can register here.

After upgrading you are the admin of your Tutanota Premium account. An additional input field will appear under 'Settings' -> 'Global settings' -> 'Custom email domain' where you need to enter your domain. Activate it by confirming the activation button.

This activation process is only successful if you have configured your MX and SPF records for your domain correctly. The MX record is necessary to relay emails for your domain to the Tutanota servers. The SPF record marks the Tutanota server as valid sender of emails from your domain. You need to configure the following DNS records in the settings of your domain name provider:

MX mail.tutanota.de
TXT v=spf1 include:spf.tutanota.de -all

Depending on your domain hoster, it could also look like this:
@ mail.tutanota.de
@ v=spf1 include:spf.tutanota.de -all TXT Record

Please note that changes to your DNS records are not immediately available, but can take a few hours to become active. You can check your DNS settings here.

After you have successfully activated your domain, you can add an email alias or create a user under 'Settings' -> 'User management'.

What do I do if activation fails?

Please verify your DNS SOA entry if the activation of your custom domain still fails. We use the SOA entry for detecting your main DNS server. Therefore, the SOA entry must point to a valid name server.

Como posso usar Tutanota na minha organização ou empresa com o meu próprio domínio?
  1. Register a Tutanota Premium account here. This will be your initial administrator account. Once you have added additional accounts to your initial administrator account, you can mark all - or just some - as admin accounts. Your administrator account(s) can configure all general settings and manage user accounts, e.g. reset user passwords. As we at Tutanota can not reset passwords, we recommend to have at least two admin accounts. This way you can reset each others password in case you lose one.
  2. Add your domain in "Settings" -> "Global settings" -> "Custom email domain". There you will also find instructions on how to configure your MX DNS entries first in order to route incoming SMTP emails to the Tutanota email servers.
  3. Add user accounts (i.e. mailboxes) for your domain in "Settings" -> "User management". If you have a large number of users, you can import a CSV file containing user name, email address and optionally the user password. This is useful to automatically create all user accounts in one step.
  4. Provide the user passwords to the users, so they can log in into their mailboxes.
Quando preciso de emails criptografados?

Email encryption is needed whenever you want to send a confidential email. That is whenever your emails contains personal information that should not become public. The following examples show the differences between end-to-end encrypted, confidential emails and emails that are not being end-to-end encrypted in Tutanota.

Alice is registered with Tutanota, Bob may be registered with Tutanota or an external recipient and Carol is not registered with Tutanota. In any case all emails (including attachments) are stored encrypted on the Tutanota servers. Independent of the end-to-end encryption, the transport between client and Tutanota servers is secured with SSL and DANE to maximize security. You can check here how to install the DANE browser add-ons.

Sending and receiving end-to-end encrypted emails
The email is encrypted on Alice' client, stored encrypted on the server and can only be decrypted by Alice or Bob.

Sending and receiving end-to-end encrypted emails

Sending non-confidential emails
The email is sent via SMTP to the recipient. Still, the sent email is encrypted for Alice on the server and then stored.

Sending non-confidential emails

Receiving non-confidential emails
When the SMTP email is received by the Tutanota server, it is encrypted for Alice and then stored on the server.

Receiving non-confidential emails

Instruction on updating WebView on Android

Updating WebView is usually as simple as installing an app. For devices with Android older than N (7), 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.


Menu de navegação: Emails e Pastas

Dependendo da largura do navegador na tela, o Tutanota mostra suas pastas, lista de emails e o email selecionado.


  • Para adicionar pastas, clique no símbolo + no painel de pastas à esquerda. Coloque o nome da pasta no pop-up que abrir. A nova pasta será colocada em ordem alfabética no painel de pastas. Você pode criar quantas pastas quiser.

Email handling

Mail menu items

When you select an email, these options show up to its top.

  • For writing a new email, simply click the red pen symbol in the down right corner. Shortcut: Click N.
  • The top email menu has the following options:

    • Arrow left = reply - Shortcut: Click R.
    • Double arrow left = reply all - Shortcut: Click ⇧ + R.
    • Arrow right = forward
    • Folders symbol = Move this email to a folder. When you click this symbol, a folder list opens where you can choose a folder to move the email to. You can also move a mail with drag & drop in a browser or with sliding left and right in the apps.
    • Delete symbol = The email is moved to Trash.
    • Three dot symbol = You can mark the email unread or export it.

  • You can also click on 'Add inbox rule' (Premium feature) or 'Add spam rule' so that future mails from this contact are automatically moved to a specific folder.

Add rule

  • As a Premium user you can also click 'Add rule' to send all new emails from this sender to a particular folder. Find more details on 'Inbox rules' under section 'Email'.

Sending of emails

Write a mail

Condensed email window.

  • Click on the red pen symbol in the down right corner to compose a new email.
  • When you enter an email address into the 'To'-field, Tutanota shows you the preview of matching email addresses from your address book. You can hit 'Enter' to choose the first email address shown or you can keep on typing.
  • Once you have entered an email address in the 'To'-field, the 'Confidential'-button appears in the 'Subject' line. Click on it to send this mail not end-to-end encrypted. You may also switch the default to encrypted/not-encrypted here in your Settings→ 'Default delivery'. Emails to other Tutanota users are always end-to-end encrypted; there is no option to disable this.
  • Below the recipient's email address of an encrypted mail, you enter the 'Password' for the recipient, which you need to share with your recipient via a different channel.
  • Attach files by clicking on the file symbol in the subject line or by using drag & drop.
  • Write your email like you are used to from other webmail services. When you click 'Send', Tutanota automatically encrypts subject, body and attachments for you.

Writing an email

Enlarged email window.

  • Click on 'Show' in the 'To' field to enlarge/reduce the options shown. After enlarging it, you can enter Cc- and Bcc-recipients.
  • If you have added an alias in 'Settings', you can also change the email address you want to send from by clicking on the pen symbol next to the 'Sender' email address. You can change the default sender here in your Settings→ 'Default sender'. This makes your alias the default sender, the Tutanota address will still remain the main account address (name in tab) which can't be changed.
  • External recipients of an end-to-end encrypted email receive a notification mail from your Tutanota email address. You can choose the language of this notification email by clicking on the pen symbol on the right (in this screenshot: English is chosen).
Enviando emails não criptografados por padrão

Go here in your Settings. You can choose whether emails to external recipients should be encrypted by default ('Confidential') or if you need to click on the lock symbol when composing an email to encrypt it ('Not confidential' = unencrypted by default). Emails to other Tutanota users are always encrypted by default.

Email criptografado para destinatário externo

Quando for enviar um email criptpografado para um destinatário externo, você precisa definir uma senha ao redigir o email.

Redigir email

A senha que for definida será armazenada automaticamente no cadastro do respectivo destinatária na lista de contados do Tutanota. Na próxima vez que você redigir um email e informar o mesmo destinatário, o Tutanota irá usar a senha previamente definida. Use um outro canal para informar a senha ao destinatário.

O destinatário externo:

  • recebe um email com o link da mensagem no Tutanota (basta clicar no link e abrir em qualquer navegador),
  • informa a senha recebida pelo remetente,
  • pode ler o e-mail descriptografado, responder confidencialmente, exportar todas as mensagens trocadas e salvá-las localmente.

Nota: o link informado no email só abrirá a mensagem descriptografada mediante a digitação da senha. Deste modo, caso alguém queira interceptar a mensagem criptografada, será necessário conhecer o link exato e a senha a ele associada. (Um link perde a validade assim que for enviado um novo email para o mesmo destinatário.)

Adding alias email addresses

Como usuário Premium ou Pro, você pode criar pseudônimos para sua conta de email. Você pode criar também pacotes adicionais de pseudônimos. Para mais detalhes, consulte nossa página com os preços.

Sua caixa postal→ 'Pseudônimos': Clique em 'Mostrar pseudônimos'. Clique no sinal de mais (+) para adicionar pseudônimos. Uma janela pop-up abrirá para você digitar o pseudônimo. Clique no botão de três pontos (...) para escolher o domínio do pseudônimo que pode ser qualquer domínio do Tutanota ou seu próprio domínio que adicionado previamente na sua conta do Tutanota.

Observação: Pseudônimos do domínio Tutanota só podem ser desabilitados mas não excluídos. Pseudônimos desativados permanecerão associados a sua conta para que você possa ativá-los no futuro. Caso adote seu próprio domínio no Tutanota, você poderá excluir ou criar novos pseudônimos a ele associados.

Você pode alterar o remetente padrão nos pseudônimos criados para seu domínio (ou qualquer outro) alterando o email do remetente padrão aqui→ 'Remetente Padrão'. Isto tornará seu pseudônimo o remetente padrão. Entretanto, seu email principal do Tutanota (nome em destaque) permanecerá inalterado.

Spam detection rules (configuration of spam blacklist and whitelist)

Spam detection in Tutanota is multi staged. For incoming unencrypted SMTP emails the received email is checked against DNS blacklists first. In a second stage we filter emails by executing content checks and mark emails as spam or not. Emails that have been marked as spam will be moved to the spam folder of your mailbox. In a third stage we filter spam on the base of user defined email sender lists. This list provides the possibility to classify email addresses as spam (blacklist) or explicit not as spam (whitelist). The check is active for all incoming emails and can be configured by the administrator. The rules are valid for all users.

As administrator for a Tutanota account you can configure the email address list here in Settings.

Please click on the sender's address to assign the email address or domain with one of the following spam rules:

  • No spam - Emails from this sender email address are always stored in the inbox.
  • Always spam - Emails from this sender email address will always be stored in the spam folder.
  • Discard - Emails from this sender email address will be silently discarded. The sender does not get any information about it.

The "No spam" rule has a higher priority than "Always spam" and "Discard" has the lowest priority. Furthermore you are able to define rules based on a domain instead of a single email address. Rules defined for a domain have a lower priority than rules for an email address.

Rules for domains are restricted. You are not able to assign the rules "Always spam" and "Discard" to Tutanota domains, neither to your custom domains.

O Tutanota, como um provedor de serviço de email, não pode resetar suas senhas por motivos de segurança.
  • 'Auditoria': esse log só é visível a administradores de contas Premium. Ele contém ações administrativas importantes, como por exemplo se um usuário utiliza autenticação de dois fatores ou se você alterou a senha de uma de suas contas de usuário.
Etiqueta branca


  • Click on the pen symbol to activate whitelabel (€2 per user/per month). When you order the whitelabel feature, you can activate the Tutanota login at your own domain (a subdomain), change the look of Tutanota according to your needs (e.g. Corporate Identity) and create secure contact forms for your clients.
  • '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

  • 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. Set the CNAME DNS entry for that domain to point 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.

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. Set the CNAME DNS entry for that domain to point 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 '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).


  • '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.
  • '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.

Now you can open your custom domain in your browser and see the Tutanota login with your customizations.

Whitelabel: How can I get the Tutanota login at my custom (own) domain and configure colors and my logo?

When you order the whitelabel upgrade for your Premium account you can activate the Tutanota login on your own domain (a sub-domain), change the look of Tutanota according to your needs (e.g. corporate identity) and create contact forms for your clients. If you send confidential messages to external recipients, those recipients are also directed to your whitelabel domain.

Complete list of possible customizations:

  • Set custom logo (displayed on your whitelabel domain instead of the Tutanota logo).
  • Set custom colors (displayed on your whitelabel domain).
  • Set custom meta tags for the Tutanota app on your whitelabel domain, like title and social media texts.
  • Set a custom imprint link (displayed in the "More" menu on the login page of your whitelabel domain instead of the Tutanota imprint link).
  • Set a custom notification email text for external recipients (coming soon).

Preconditions for applying the whitelabel feature:

  • You need your custom whitelabel domain. This must be a subdomain. A main domain is technically not allowed. It is also not allowed to add an email domain as whitelabel domain.
  • You need a valid SSL certificate for your whitelabel domain and you need to make sure to update it in Tutanota before it expires.

This is how you can setup your whitelabel domain:

  1. Choose a subdomain of your own domain, at which you would like to reach the Tutanota login.
  2. Set the CNAME DNS entry for that domain to point to login.tutanota.com. Keep in mind that the DNS changes may take a while until propagated.
  3. Enable the Tutanota login at your domain by uploading your domain's SSL certificate chain and private key here in your Tutanota Settings - Whitelabel. Both must be provided in PEM format (base64 coded). 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 you certificate file. Your certificate chain file might then look like this:

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

  4. Optionally upload your custom logo to be shown when you load Tutanota at your own domain.

  5. Optionally configure your custom colors to be used in Tutanota when you load Tutanota at your own domain.

Now you should be able to open your custom domain in your browser and see the Tutanota login with your own logo and own colors. Additionally you may now order and setup contact forms ("Settings" -> "Contact forms") which allows you to be contacted confidentially.

Please note that your whitelabel customizations will not be visible in the mobile apps.

Formulários de contato

Contact forms

Contact forms allow you to be contacted confidentially as all messages are automatically end-to-end encrypted.

Create a new contact form

  • Click the plus symbol in the down right corner. 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 (i.e. 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.

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.
Definindo o administrador dos usuários e dos formulários de contato
  • 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.
