you are a regular Zoho Mail user, you probably noticed frequent improvements
to the app. Our Mail team keeps pushing some goodies which we don’t
talk regularly in this blog, but the latest update very much needs
mention as it adds some great features.
Drag and Drop your Emails
can now drag and drop your emails in Zoho Mail. As you know, we support
both folders and labels in Zoho Mail. No matter what you use, you’ll
now be able to effortlessly organize your emails.
move your emails to a folder (or sub-folder), just drag your email to
the folders on the left. When you drag and email, a green background color
indicates that you can successfully move the email to the folder. A Red
background color indicates that the email cannot be moved to the folder.
This drag-n-drop functionality is similar to what we offer in Zoho Docs.
While this functionality works for Folders, the way Labels behaves is different as you can
assign multiple labels to an email. To do that, you need to drag and
drop your email to the label. If you need multiple labels assigned to your
email, just drag and drop your email on top of t the labels.
To drag and drop multiple emails, just select the emails and move them across to either folders or labels.
Open Attachments in a Tab
Mail had the option to open your email attachments with respective Zoho
applications – Writer, Sheet and Show. Previously, the attachments were
opened in a new browser tab. With this update, we open email
attachments as a tab within Zoho Mail. This way you can switch between your emails and attachments without leaving the application.
We previously used tabs to open documents in Zoho Docs. Now, you’ll notice this consistent behavior while opening attachments in Zoho Mail.
Compose Window Enhancements
There were several improvements in the Compose window.
When you compose a mail now, you’ll notice that it opens in a new tab
within Mail (similar to attachments). An option is available to pop it out in a new window.
You’ll also notice few changes in the Compose WYSIWYG editor with
fine-tuned buttons. We also added new options to insert tables, inline images
Zoho Mail now supports Google Chrome browser. With
this update, we now officially support Firefox, IE and Chrome. We do
have plans to support Safari moving forward.
Apart from many minor bug fixes, this version of Zoho Mail
gets other enhancements like the ‘Edit as New’ option in Mail view.
We’ll leave it to you to explore other features.
As always, we are looking forward to your feedback.
