The Bottom Line

Zoho Mail is a solid email service with ample storage, POP and IMAP access, some integration with instant messaging and online office suites.
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.
  • Templates let you save email text for later re-use, and an outbox can delay mail delivery for some time to allow unsending.
  • Business hosting plans let you use Zoho Mail with your own domains and email policies (for, e.g., quotas and access).
