The Bottom Line
Aimed at professional users, Zoho Mail could be even more helpful organizing mail, identifying key messages and contacts, and sending oft-used replies.
- Zoho Mail includes ample storage and offers POP and IMAP access
- Labels and comprehensive search help you organize mail
- Zoho Mail comes without display advertising
- Zoho Mail cannot access other IMAP accounts
- While Zoho Mail offers templates, you cannot use them for canned replies
- Zoho Mail lacks saved searches and self-learning folders
- Zoho Mail is a free email service with unlimited online storage (and quotas for mail sent and received per day) for personal use.
- You can set up Zoho Mail to retrieve mail from POP accounts and send from its web interface using all your addresses.
- Zoho Mail itself can be accessed in email programs and services via both POP and IMAP.
- Certain paid Zoho Mail accounts offer Exchange ActiveSync for push email and synchronization as well.
- Folders and free-form labels let you organize mail. Rules offer some automation, and a spam filter files junk out of the inbox.
- An out-of-office auto-responder can answer emails on your behalf.
- Flexible search options that let you combine many criteria find emails (and attached files) precisely.
- Zoho Mail includes Zoho Chat instant messaging and offers some integration with Zoho apps and Google Docs for attachments.
- Email conversations can be read in context with a tree view. Zoho Mail can automatically archive old mail.

- Business hosting plans let you use Zoho Mail with your own domains and email policies (for, e.g., quotas and access).
