Registering your second factor
Tutanota currently supports the following second factor types:
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
You can reset the second factors if you have noted down your personal recovery code. 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.

When you press enter, Tutanota takes you to a more detailed search mask. The free search feature goes back one month into the past.
The detailed search mask lets you specify the time frame which should be searched (one month for free users). The unlimited search feature also lets you filter your search, e.g. who sent the email, to whom did you send the email, was the search query contained in the subject or in the body, what folder should be searched.

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:
TXT v=spf1 include:spf.tutanota.de -all
Depending on your domain hoster, it could also look like this:
HOST NAME IP ADDRESS / URL RECORD TYPE
@ 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.
