New Features in Zoho Mail

General, Zoho Mail | July 8, 2010 | 2 min read

This week we rolled out yet another update to Zoho Mail with more goodies. Most of these features are driven by user requests. Here are some highlights of the latest update.


Drag & Drop Folders 


You can now move folders in Zoho Mail by simple drag and drop. Select the folder you want to move and drag it to the destination and drop it there, if you see there green icon. This is one of the most requested feature and it is currently live.


Coloring Labels


A new color palette is now available for labels. To change the color of a label, just click on the existing color of the label to open the palette and choose the desired color.



Customize Label display


You can now customize the look and feel of the labels in the Message view pane. Apart from displaying the complete label name, we added a new option (under Settings
> Customize Layout > Label Display) which just displays only the color of the label.  

View the Message Size

Message size can now be viewed from the Message listing pane. The view can be customized either to display or to hide the message size as per the requirement.


Sort the Messages by Subject/ Sender

The messages can be now sorted by the sender or the subject in the message listing pane. To sort by sender/subject, just click the label ‘From’/’Subject’ in the message listing pane. A small triangle pointing upwards (ascending)/downwards (descending) will be displayed next to the label clicked.The messages will get listed in the chosen order.


Drag and drop to change POP Accounts order 

When multiple POP accounts are configured, the users can now determine their preferred order to fetch emails from the multiple accounts. The order for the multiple POP accounts can now be changed by simple drag and drop. To configure this, go to Common settings > select POP accounts tab and change the list order to the desired order by drag and drop. Select ‘Save’ in the confirmation dialog.

Open Message in tab

Message settings can be customized to open the message in a new tab. The default setting will open the message in the preview pane. This can be changed by choosing ‘Popup’ or ‘Tab’ from the ‘Open message in’ option under common settings. You can also right click on any message and open it up in any of these three ways.

Create Folders in a single click


You can now create folders/ sub-folders in a single click. To create a new sub-folder just right click on the parent folder, select ‘Subfolder’ and name it. You can als
o rename a folder by simply double-clicking the name (or right-click, rename).

These are some of the changes we made in the latest update. There are several other minor ones. We hope you like the update. If you’d like to see any particular features, please drop us a comment.

    Why aren’t the mail folders listed in alphabetical order. I waste so much time trying to find the needed one.
