Have the comfort of reading emails on your own terms, view the statuses of your emails at a glance, call your colleagues from the mailbox, and drag-and-drop your emails as attachments. Make emailing simpler with Zoho Mail’s fresh set of features!
Without further ado, we present you the fourth installment in our Roundup of features blog posts.
Everyone has a preference when it comes to reading: the brightness at a certain level, the font size a little bigger, a particular font style and so on. The most important thing is that the words are legible and appealing enough to catch and retain the reader’s attention.
So why should it be different for emails? When emails that contain important information come in different fonts, sizes, and styles, it can disrupt your focus.
We can’t have that, so Zoho Mail came up with the Reader View. A little book icon in the top-right corner of every open email that will give you the perfect way to read the email on your terms.
Just like your e-reader, Zoho Mail lets you adjust the font size, line spacing, and font family to your liking. There’s even an estimated ‘time to read’ metric in the header of your emails. You can also switch between Night and Day modes while reading, in case you’re in bed, on a red eye flight, or just like to take it easy on the eyes. If you’re in an email conversation thread, you can just click the Next button to view subsequent emails.
Printing your emails is easy from the Reader view, just click and send to the printer without the clutter of headers and wild html styling. Have a neat and crisp physical copy of your emails.
Email status indicator:
The first thing you look at when you log into your mail account is your mail listing. As you scroll down checking one email after the other, there are bound to be instances where you do a double-take – wondering if you’ve replied to that one from your boss or if you’ve forwarded the email your colleague asked for.
With Zoho Mail’s Email status indicator, you don’t have to open an email to see if you’ve replied to it or not. Now your mail listing sports dedicated icons that display the status of your emails.
Besides indicating the Read/Unread statuses of the email, these icons placed before the sender’s name (In case of Classic view, it is visible when you hover over an email) will show whether the email has been:
Audio and video call support in Contact cards:
Some things are better explained over calls, where there is less room for miscommunication. The next time you want more clarification on the email your colleague sent you, give them a call straight from your mailbox.
That’s right, Zoho Mail now supports audio and video calls, in addition to its integrated chat option by Zoho Cliq.
Clicking on an email address displays the chat, as well as audio and video call options on the contact card. Select the most convenient option and start a conversation instantly.
Add emails as EML attachments:
When most of your business emails feature the phrase, “Please find attached,” it needn’t necessarily be media files that are attached, it can also be emails. It is not unusual for people to attach emails for reference when replying to an existing email thread or composing a new one.
In Zoho Mail, you don’t have to download each email in order to attach them while composing an email. A simple drag and drop does the trick.
Once you click Compose Mail, just click and drag the email(s) you wish to add as EML attachments from your mailbox, then drop them into the compose tab.
You can also select multiple emails in your mailbox and use the ‘Forward multiple emails’ option to attach those emails as EML attachments and start composing a new mail all at once.
