No bother, but gnu.emacs.vm.info would be more appropriate.

Does gmx.net support POP or IMAP? If not, you're out of luck.

Is suspect your user name is just "m_osm" (not "address@hidden").  So:

(setq vm-spool-files
      (list
       (list "~/INBOX"
             "gmx.net:110:pass:m_osm:*"
             "~/INBOX.CRASH")))

Was your password accepted by gmx.net?  If not, VM would not be able to
see the messages in your mailbox.
