I did another test.

I've created a new user "M-Reimertest". This user uses the mail address 
"Manuel.Spam at nurfuerspam.de" which is an address which is provided by 
the *same* GMX account as using for my primary address.

I was able to register. I received the initial password reset mail and I 
was able to finish registration.

BUT: I'm unable to request password reset with this "test account", too.

So maybe the interesting question is: Is there *any* difference between 
the mail, you send on account creation and on password reset?

It *is* possible to create new accounts using GMX addresses. This way I 
was able to create my account the first time and this way I was able to 
create this "test account". But it, for some reason, is impossible to 
request password reset. Those mails are "eaten" by the GMX mail server... :(

Hope this helps somehow to track down the issue... Would be nice to get 
my "primary account" back somehow...

Thank you very much for any support.
