Two years ago, we made Zoho Mail public for free personal use and we are happy with the reception and feedback we have gotten so far. For example, we recently won the Reader’s choice award for The Best Free Email Service 2011. Now, we are taking another big step in our quest to bring the best hosted email to our customers.
Today, we’re opening Zoho Mail for businesses. What took us so long? We wanted to make sure the product was right. Business and professional users have come to expect the rich functionality from their desktop email client and the no-hassles, fast, accessible-anywhere convenience of web-based email.
Now, you no longer have to make a choice between the lesser of two evils: either burning a hole in your wallet with a full-featured, expensive email solution or settle for a web-based, affordable email service with bare minimum features. Zoho Mail gives you the best of three worlds: feature-rich business email, no-hassle email hosting and an affordable price. For example, here are some of the rich features that make Zoho Mail’s web interface ideal for business users:
- Supports both Folders & Labels, making it all the more easier to organize and access messages
- Helps you to tag incoming messages with
Labels & Flags
and directly move them to appropriate folders using
Rules & Filters
functionality that can search even inside attachments
Comes with a sleek
interface for better communication
amongst your colleagues and customers
mobile web interface
for anywhere, anytime access on iPhone, Android, Blackberry and other mobile devices
In addition, with integrated Calendar, Tasks, Notes and Contacts apps with features exceeding even those of popular desktop clients you are able to share calendars, set reminders, assign tasks, take notes on the fly and always have your most important information handy. And, for those users who are accustomed to desktop email clients, Zoho Mail synchronizes seamlessly with the most popular ones (Outlook and Thunderbird), through POP / IMAP.
Of course, we realize that having rich, flexible administrator options is just as important as having a rich product for end users. If you are a business mail administrator, the powerful Control Panel makes it simple for you to manage all aspects of business emailing. For example:
with respect to mailbox quotas, access privileges etc., and even assign different policies to different groups of people
and group related polices, spam control and moderation
customized email addresses
for your business users
Add and manage
to other users, streamline administration and more.
With Zoho as your email host, you do not have to worry about maintaining complicated mail server infrastructure. You can leave that part to us since it is in our business as a company offering services on the cloud to manage state-of-the-art data centers with multiple layers of security. In fact, your data is safer in our data centers!
What about the affordable price? Our plans start at just $2 per user/month ($24 per user/year). And may be the best part about our pricing plans is that you need not buy an entire year upfront. Of course you get a slightly better price with a yearly commitment, but we know businesses sometimes need the flexibility that only monthly plans can give them.
So, if you are a new business looking for an email host or currently paying an arm-and-a-leg for managing your business email, Zoho Mail is now open for Business!
