You can access Zoho Mail on any mobile device from http://mobile.zoho.com, if you have a decent browser. But if you prefer using the local email client on your mobile device, you can fetch mails from Zoho Mail through POP or IMAP. We recently introduced IMAP support in Zoho Mail and today I want to expand on how to configure this on iPhone, iPad & iPod Touch.
Before you can configure your mobile email client, you first need to enable POP/IMAP access for your email account. To do this, go to Email Settings > Personalize > Email forwarding and POP/IMAP and enable either POP or IMAP. Here are the instructions for POP and IMAP.
Once you enable IMAP, you can now follow these instructions on your iPhone to receive/send emails.
Go to Settings App > Mail, Contacts, Calendars >Choose ‘Add Account’ and ‘Other’ option.
In the next screen, choose ‘Add Mail Account’ and provide the details like Name, email address (email@example.com), your Zoho password and a description of your account.
In the next screen provide Incoming Mail Server (imap.zoho.com) and Outgoing Mail Server (smtp.zoho.com)
Once the details are verified, you should be all set. You can now open the mail app to fetch emails from Zoho Mail. In case of IMAP, mails read on your mail client will be marked as read on Zoho Mail client as well.
Configuration instructions are similar for iPad as well. In case you need additional details to configure IMAP, here we go.
Incoming Port: 993
Outgoing Port: 465
Outgoing Mail Server Requires Authentication: Yes
Hope this helps. If you face any issues, please let us know.
