It’s been nearly two and a half years since the launch of the current user interface in Zoho Mail, and over 95% of our users are on this version and loving it! We’d like to thank you for all the positive reviews and the constructive feedback on the new and advanced features that were added in that release. It motivated us to create an even better version for you—Zoho Mail 2018.
Curious what to expect from Zoho Mail 2018? We’re here to give you a sneak peek of all the changes we’ve made to the UI.
New additions in Zoho Mail 2018
Tabs on Top
The tabs that were on the side have now been moved to the top of your Mailbox.
Addressing frequent feedback from our old UI users, we’ve implemented Tabs on Top in this version. They’re now visually more akin to the tabs used in other major web browsers.
Your mailbox has been revamped to give it a fresh new look.
We decided to help the icons in the App bar, and the Quick Actions buttons, stand out more by redesigning them and making them more colorful.
Super Compact view
One more way of looking at your mail listing.
For those who like the Compact view because it lets you view more emails at once, we’ve taken it a step further with the Super Compact view. Designed to address our users who like to view large numbers of emails at once, it’ll definitely save you some scrolling time.
The ‘Advanced Search’ functionality is packed into the top right corner of your mailbox.
More than meets the eye, Advanced Search helps you track down elusive content hiding in your inbox, even with the tiniest detail you can remember.
Attachment viewer, Settings, and What’s New:
Attachment viewer, Settings, and What’s new icons are now on the right side of your mailbox
With the tabs and search bar replacing the top bar, the other icons on it are shifted to the right side of your mailbox for better visibility.
Settings just got user-friendly with the Card view.
Settings have been enhanced with a Card view for better visibility and accessibility. Customizing your mailbox with these options is a much simpler process now, with the settings categorized and split up into cards.
You can access Zoho Mail 2018 in your mailbox by clicking >> ‘Try Zoho Mail 2018’.
As always, your feedback and support are highly appreciated! 🙂
What to expect if you’re using the Old UI
Before we delve into this, for those of you who aren’t aware of how the Old UI looks:
*If you’re not using this version, please skip to the end of the blog.
If you’re using this UI, you’re missing out on many features and functionalities that Zoho Mail has to offer. In addition to being easier to access and navigate, the latest UI is designed with speed in mind.
A visual peek at cool stuff you might be missing out on:
Due to upgrades in browser standards, these advanced features can only be supported in the newer versions of Zoho Mail.
Still hesitating to make the switch? Zoho Mail 2018 now sports Tabs on Top (a popular request). You’ll feel right at home with tabs at the top of your mailbox, just like in the old UI, but with much better functionalities.
To access Zoho Mail 2018, click ‘Try New version’, which will take you to the Previous version of the UI and click on >> ‘Try Zoho Mail 2018’.
With our goal set on building advanced features to benefit our business email users and bringing a modern approach to emailing, we’ve decided to cease supporting the old UI, in order to fully concentrate on upgrading our existing one. It will be replaced with Zoho Mail 2018 after the beta phase of two weeks, starting today. All users will be automatically moved to Zoho Mail 2018 on May 18, 2018.
