Zoho Mail limitations they don't tell you aboutMarch 28, 2011 By aicardi
They fail to tell you the limitations to the free account. This is my experience so far. 1. Limit 250 sent mails per day. If you go over that your account is blocked. Their reasoning is to control spam. Which is fine but it's not disclosed when you sign up for an account anywhere. 2. 10mb size limit on attachments. Again nowhere is this disclosed and if you go over, well, your account gets blocked. 3. 10 bounced emails per day. You guessed it. Your account gets blocked. 4. There is also a limit to ""incoming"" mail. I do not know the limit. When I asked in the forum I noticed all my posts are now being moderated. The only way to get your account unblocked is to go to the forum and post that you were blocked. Most people there have no clue as to why they were blocked in the first place. That said. I have no problem whatsoever with any of the limitations. I do have a problem with not disclosing them up front. They have no mention of anything in the FAQ, and if you ask too many questions it seems you soon get moderated and your post never go up. Sign up for an account and just lurk the forums. While it is a very clean interface, Zoho Mail has many bugs that do not seem to get attention. For me the biggest is the auto refresh is clearly broken. I have to manually refresh the page in order to get the new mail. There are several threads on this topic in the forums. Not ready for enterprise by a long shot.

A promising serviceMarch 21, 2011 By whitecraft
As I said on the Zoho user forums, if they improve their filtering a little (specifically, allowing conditional autoforwarding as Gmail and some others do), I'll seriously consider replacing Gmail with Zoho as my primary service. For now, Gmail still has an edge on Zoho feature-wise. (while GMX doesn't even deserve rating in the top 10 as far as I'm concerned -- horrible service). But lipakleliluneh, what's this about Zoho now having ""no free services""? I'm still using my free Zoho email and I've seen nothing anywhere about the free service being discontinued except in your review here. Please provide a source for this claim.

Long Time Coming !October 14, 2010 By nandaweave
Well, Among the Goliath's this seemingly obscure Zoho Mail Stands Tall. Zoho Mail is a breeze to communicate and experience connecting to people in a unique way. It has all the features one could ask for and they have been introducing new features frequently. It has been a long time coming to About and is a deserved rival to Gmail. One thing that is most commendable about Zoho is that there are no ads for this wonderful service in an era of inflated commerce. Well try using Zoho and you will see the difference. and Thank you to Heinz for Listing Zoho at No.2 position .
