Zoho Mail is a service intended for businesses. The application allows users to administrate email for multiple domains, both newly purchased domains and those that the company already owns. The user control panel provides the user with access to functions like the group manager, restriction policies and domain management tools. Users can create unlimited groups and aliases. Zoho Mail also provides business users with experts who help walk them through the migration process when transitioning from a different mail service to Zoho. Search and filter options allow users to locate messages using specific criteria and sort the results into separate tabs. Just like other email services, Zoho Mail provides folders and labels as well. Calendars, task lists and note taking features are included as well as a built in instant chat feature that allows users to communicate with others in their business or organization.
Zoho Mail is a part of the Zoho collection of applications. Zoho was founded in September of 2005. The company is currently based in Pleasanton, California and includes around 1,500 employees. The current team consists of Director of Business Development Ian Wenig and Evangelist Raju Vegesna. The company continues to produce web-based applications for professionals.
Most modern email services provide a number of features that are very similar to what Zoho Mail offers. What makes the application an appealing option is its business focused features. The mail service is intended for companies or organizations that need to manage their email on a larger scale. The user can oversee email for multiple domains and can add more domains later on. The application also includes many of the helpful features included in other mail solutions, such as calendars, tasks, notes, search functions, filters and labels.
Most Zoho products utilize a similar color scheme and layout design, and Zoho Mail is no different. The website features the colorful Zoho block logo beside the Mail name. A dark blue header bar provides users with access to more information while menus that run down the left hand side link the user to even more information and details. The overall design is very professional without sacrificing the vibrant colors that identify Zoho applications.
Zoho Mail offers users three membership options. The first is the Lite plans which requires a domain. This plan allows up to three users, one domain, up to three groups, 1 GB of mail storage space per user and email support. The Standard 10 GB plan costs around $2 per user, per month and includes access for multiple domains, unlimited groups, up to 10 GBs of mail storage per user and phone and email support. The Standard 15 GB plan costs around $3 per user per month and includes up to 15 GB of mail storage per user.
Zoho Mail is a helpful application for small to medium size businesses who need an email service. The application provides many valuable features that cater to a business’ needs. The pricing is also ideal because the company only pays for as many accounts as they need.
