A sight for your sore eyes, a way to track your emails, a tactic to stay in sync, and a quick action for your follow-ups. Zoho Mail’s newest additions are sure to impress you.

In line with our first roundup of features, we’ve decided to periodically surprise you with a bunch of nifty feature updates. While the first one in the series concentrated on CRM integration, Bookmarks, and other features, this part will cover more exciting features.

Night Mode:

Bags are great, but not under your eyes.

When long nights with coffee cups and tired eyes don’t stop you from getting your work done, the least you can do is make the experience a pleasant one.

With this in mind, Zoho Mail introduces Night Mode. Now you can turn your screen to a darker theme to suit your surroundings at night, making it easy on your eyes.

Just like on your favorite e-readers, Night Mode makes it comfortable to check your email so you’re more productive at night.

 Mail Delivery Indicator:

Sent or not, know it fast.

Whenever you send an email, it’s important to know if it has been delivered so you can follow up effectively.

Zoho Mail’s delivery status lets you know if, and when, an email has been delivered in the email listing pane. A simple green tick on your sent email preview indicates that your email has been delivered, while queued and undelivered emails are marked with relevant icons

Learn more about how email delivery status works.

Zoho Projects Integration:

Stay in sync.

If you are using both Zoho Mail and Zoho Projects, this one will help you tackle your Tasks.

Tasks inside Zoho Mail come in handy for collaborating on workrelated tasks or managing your personal to-dos. However, if you need an advanced Project Management system for working on different Projects with multiple teams, our integration with Zoho Projects will be advantageous for you.

This integration allows you to view your Project portals and the Tasks under their respective portals. You can view this right from your Inbox, from the Tasks App.

Directly associate an email with a Task/Bug in a particular Project. Add and assign teammates, along with Task/Bug details, all without leaving your mailbox. Any edits made to the Tasks/Bugs in your Project portals are synced with your Zoho mailbox, making sure that you’re always in the loop 

Quick Action:

Do Press that Button 

Inboxes are now filled with more notifications and follow up emails than personal messages.

Inspired by the wide popularity of theCall to Action button inside these emails, we went one step further and came up with Quick Action. This follow-up feature in Zoho Mail displays the CTA button right in the preview of the email.

It can be a prompt, like RSVP within the inbox, or a link to a third-party application/website, like your e-store order page, depending on the type of response for the action.

We’re working on multiple similar integrations to give you the best experience with email.  If there’s a particular integration you’re especially interested in, leave comment. We’ll consider your suggestions because we want running a business via email to be as incredible as it can be.

    Looks promising – however I note you released it in July on US servers based on my US account, only this week on EU servers based on my EU sent folder.
    Several of my emails have no icon nothing in the documentation explains why this occurs – please specify why this happens. I assume you are using a tracking bit that gets stripped out by the receiving server so you are not getting a response. Taking a guess most of the emails with no marker are exchange accounts ?

    • Mary Infantina

      Hey Lucy, We have a process based on which the quick actions in emails are identified. We are registering the domains in the EU servers based on the user requests. In case you want emails from any specific providers to be marked up with quick actions, send us the ‘Show original’ of a sample email to support@zohomail.com. We will check the email source and get back to you in detail.

  7. Sajin

    Mary Infantina – I am having series of problems while using outlook with zoho mail.

    synchronization is so poor. But online zoho is more better. But the feel of using the outlook is important. i had hard times with Zoho mail. Where should i contact ?

    even i click send button in outlook, Email being sent and still shows in the draft. same with the online.

    • Mary Infantina

  13. Prasanna Gharat

    Night mode adding more positive things for zoho mail and Delivery indicator help traking emails. Thank you for adding nice features..

    • Mary Infantina

      Hey Prasanna, We are glad you liked our new additions!

  14. José Cage

    Awesome feature.. Keep your work/project fine..

    +10

    • Mary Infantina

      Thanks a lot for your nice words, José!

  15. Rebekah

    Quick Action button for Confirm Appointment would be wonderful!

    • Mary Infantina

      Hey Rebekah, When you get a calendar invite, you should be able to accept/ deny the invite using Quick action. In case you are unable to view the quick action options, share the details to support@zohomail.com for us to check this.

  16. Jeff

    Another two thumbs up for night mode and delivery indicator.

    I know this isn’t the right forum, but a feature request: been getting a lot of spam from variations on different email addresses and domains, which makes it a nightmare to blacklist, because you’d have to do each one. Can you introduce a wildcard character into the whitelist and blacklist lists in Anti-spam? I’m certain I’m not getting anything real from .top and .stream and .men, but it’s where all the spam is coming from. Would love to add *.top etc to the Domains–>Black List. Thanks.

    • Mary Infantina

      Hey Jeff, We are glad you liked our new additions.

      We have plans to provide support for Top Level Domain specification to block emails from the domain. We request you to email us your requirements to support@zohomail.com for further assistance in this regard.

  17. Dennis

    Hi Mary,
    The night mode is a nice addition – Thanks.
    I’m a little confused about the Quick Action Buttons. Is the article simply saying that your software can read them or is there a way that I can send out emails with them?
    That would be a huge plus… but I couldn’t find any info on it.

    • Mary Infantina

      Hi Dennis, When the emails are sent in a particular format, the links and actions can be read by our software. We request you to drop us an email to support@zohomail.com, for more details regarding the exact process for sending emails recognizable as quick action emails.

  18. ASHIK KHAN

    Thanks for adding night mode.

    • Mary Infantina

      Hello Ashik, We are glad you liked it!

  19. Paulo Figueiredo

    The best mail box I have ever used, and the integration with all the other ZOHO projects makes me decide ! ZOHO shall be part of my integrated platform @ floatlook.com

    • Mary Infantina

      Hey Paulo, We are so glad to hear the compliments from you! We at Zoho look for people using Zoho Platform as a whole for their business needs. Feel free to write to us at support@zohoworkplace.com in case you need more assistance in using our products!

  20. Allan

    I started using zoho because it was simple; overall I would like it to stay that way. I stopped using yahoo because it got so crapped up it barely worked.

    • Mary Infantina

      Hey Allan, We are glad that Zoho worked for you and you find using Zoho Mail simple and nice!

  21. John Eric Henry

    When will the new feature be activated and ready to use?

    • Mary Infantina

      Hey John, All the above features are already available. Just refresh and check if you are able to use those features. Drop us an email to support@zohomail.com for any further assistance.

  22. Ramachandran

    Delivery indicator and night mode on are adding more positive things for zoho mail. The blog site is also quite good with more white space which makes everyone to read it with ease.

    • Mary Infantina

      Glad you like these features, Ramachandran! Keep using Zoho Mail. 🙂

  23. Ronaldo R

    Parabéns… Muito bom! \o/

  24. tim

    Love Zoho Mail. Night mode is great. I still need to be able to search through my Calendar. Any news on that feature? Thanks!

    • Mary Infantina

      Hello Tim,

      Glad you like the Night Mode feature. You will be able to search for events in your calendar at calendar.zoho.com. We are working on providing search options from within the Zoho Mail suite, and it should be available soon.

      For more queries write an email to support@zohomail.com. Thank you!

  25. Roger

    Like most here, I’m pretty pleased with Zoho mail for both personal and business use.

    My pet irritation is the long winded way of adding emailed meeting requests to the calendar, something which should only take a couple of clicks. Any improvement on this would be helpful.

    • Mary Infantina

      Hello Roger,

      Glad that you’re enjoying using Zoho Mail. Since we are unable to understand the exact nature of your issue, kindly write an email to support@zohomail.com. We’ll have an expert get in touch with you. Thank you!

  26. Shanaya Goel

    Thanks to you team Zoho : ) We mostly use Zoho domain Mail, Docs like Spread Sheet etc. Glad to be a part of Your team, & Night mode is very helpful for us.

    Thankful
    Shayana

    • Mary Infantina

      Hey Shanaya,

      Glad you liked our new features. Keep using Zoho Mail!

      • Shanaya Goel

        Ow Welcome Mary !! Kindly share your Zoho Mail to us to be in touch with you.

        • Mary Infantina

          Hey Shanaya! Feel free to email us at support@zohomail.com to share your feedback or to get any assistance whenever required.

  27. Jason

    Thanks Zoho,

    Great improvements!

    The features I would really love would be ONE calendar for all Zoho apps (or at least CRM & Mail), rather than sync between the apps, as this is not ideal.

    The other would be email tracking (open & click rate)with notification when emails are opened, etc

    Keep up the great work.

    • Mary Infantina

      Thank you, Jason! We are glad you find the additions great 🙂 !

      Most of our users prefer to have separate calendars for CRM and Mail Suite. Hence we do not have immediate plans to bring about consolidation. Right now you can only sync your CRM Calendar with Mail Calendar for a unified view.

      To send out emails and getting consolidated reports about your campaigns, we suggest you to try using Zoho Campaigns, a dedicated service for such requirements.

  28. Priyesh Mandhniya

    Its Great..

  29. John Green

    …all sounds good, particularly night mode and mail delivery. All in all, quite impressed with Zoho mail…..previously with Mail.com, until I got so blitzed with Spam..!! Keep up the good work and I will move from Zoho trial to paid account. Thank you..

    • Mary Infantina

      Hey John! We are glad you liked it. Thanks for the nice words!

  30. Alberto G.

    Thanks for these updates — I’m quite sensitive to light and I’m loving the night mode so much that I’m using it by default on all my Zoho Mail accounts. I am currently evaluating (and likely purchasing) Zoho One for my business and an integration I’d like to see is that of Zoho Project’s active tasks date spans be synced and shown on Mail’s calendar (besides events) of the projects I’m part of / assigned to. My idea is to consolidate everything into One and not having to resort to third party calendars, etc, and is an integration that makes a lot of sense for me.

    • Mary Infantina

      Hey Alberto! We are really glad that you love the Night mode in Zoho Mail. We will definitely consider a better integration between Zoho Projects and Zoho Calendar!

  31. Joel

    Give me a way to migrate over from Yahoo Mail and I’m all yours. Ever since I started using it, I feel like I’ve been missing out on best-in-class mail this entire time.

    • Mary Infantina

      Hey Joel, We are happy that you want to migrate from Yahoo to Zoho Mail. Please drop an email to support@zohomail.com with more details, to assist you further in the migration process.

  32. Adam Abbas

    Zoho is probably the best mail service in my opinion. Thank You Zoho!

    • Mary Infantina

      Hey Adam! Thanks for the nice words!

  33. Any

    Thank you

  34. l3ushwacker

    Thank You! White screens and bright screens are a main cause of eye strain and dry eye now days.

    • Mary Infantina

      Thanks for the nice words. We are glad you liked it!

  35. hb bones

    thank you for night mode!!! i’m trying to avoid screens at night entirely, but in case i need to look – very much appreciate this.

    • Mary Infantina

      Glad that you liked it! Yeah..It is better to avoid screens at night. But then, we have users who have to look at their screens at night and hence we dedicate this new ‘Night mode’ to all of them!

  36. jaleinhos

    All great features. I’m looking for the ability to select and cut/copy/paste names or a group of names between To:, cc: and bcc: fields.

    • Mary Infantina

      We are glad you liked them. Right now, you will be able to move the Names between To/ Cc/ Bcc one by one. We will consider the feature to move the names in groups between these fields!

  37. Renea Davis-Leathers

    Adding a task via the email/Projects integration gives the following error:
    “Oops! An error occurred. Try again later”

    Guess I will try again later!

    • Mary Infantina

      Hey Renea! Sorry about that! Our technical team is checking the root cause of the error. We will update on this soon!

      • Haseeb Mohiudheen

        Hi Mary,

        Did You Update?

        • Mary Infantina

          Hello Haseeb,

          On analyzing your logs, we see that you have not created any portals in your Zoho Projects account. Kindly follow this help page to create portals, and then follow this help page to associate your Zoho Mail Tasks with your Project portals. Email us at support@zohomail.com, should you face any issues. Thank you, and keep using Zoho Mail!

    • Mary Infantina

      Hey Renea,

      Our technical team has analysed the root cause of the issue, and it is fixed now. Kindly check and let us know, should you face any troubles. Thank you, and keep using Zoho Mail.

  38. Robert Lovato

    Please consider bringing SORT by Subject and SORT by sender….

    • Mary Infantina

      Hey Robert! Thanks for your suggestions. We will surely consider them and try to provide those based on the feasibility!

  39. Edwin Pereira

    Felicitaciones por los avances

    • Mary Infantina

      Hola Edwin! Muchas gracias!

  40. Roy Huddle

    What I need most is more tools for formatting text in an email, like a format painter. I heard you all were working on that. Any updates?

    • Mary Infantina

      Hey Roy, We are already working on a ‘format painter’ tool in our email editor. This should be available in our future updates!

    • Mary Infantina

      Hey Roy, we are happy to inform you that the ‘Format Painter’ you requested is now available in Zoho Mail. Please do try it and give your feedback 🙂

  41. Ellen Robare

    All sounds good – Zoho has been overall a great replacement for the beloved old-version Yahoo Mail 🙂 but there a a few “pet” features I really still miss. Hope that these are next, or soon, on your list! Either would be a surprise to truly celebrate!
    1. ability to sort emails by sender, subject, etc.
    2. ability to drag names between “to”, “cc” fields when Replying All

    • Mary Infantina

      Hey Ellen, We are glad that you liked us better than Yahoo! We will surely consider your suggestions and try to provide them based on the feasibility!

    • Ronit

      You can drag names between “to”, “cc” fields when Replying All….

    • Mary Infantina

      Also, you should be able to drag and drop the names between To/ cc fields in the new interface. Do let us know in case you face any difficulties in this.

      • Ellen Robare

        Ooooh, yeah the new interface….that I have avoided trying for months because I was afraid it’d be too “junked up”! haha! I guess I am on the “keep it simple” bandwagon overall, but if this feature is on there I’ll give it a try and let you know what I think! 😀

        • Mary Infantina

          Hey Ellen,

          Glad you are giving our new interface a try. We hope you like it 🙂

      • Ellen Robare

        How do I put the preview inline instead of on the side in the new version? I can’t find it in the settings.

        • Mary Infantina

          Hey Ellen, Currently we provide only vertical preview pane for a quick view of emails. We do not have immediate plans to provide an inline preview of email in the new version. The vertical preview pane also has a lot of niche features and we are sure you will like it once you explore and use them regularly.

          • Ellen Robare

            Oh, this makes me very sad! I don’t need any of those new features – an in-line preview is already inherently easy to navigate and so much better for being able to read both the subject lines (without having them cut off) and the individual emails simultaneously!
            I’ve switched back to the old version, and I guess I’ll just say PLEASE don’t take away the ability to use the old version if you’re not adding optional views. Don’t forget about those of us who helped get you started early on by migrating from yahoo mail because of the simplicity!!!

  42. Deepak Patil

    Superb! Zoho Rocks!

    • Mary Infantina

      Hey Deepak! Thanks for the nice words!

  43. Drew

    Where’s the integration between Notebook and Mail?
    Also, still no integration/sync of Calendar, Contacts, Tasks to my Blackberry 10.

    • Mary Infantina

      Hey Drew, We have a Notes application in Mail, which is well integrated with Mail. Due to our current priorities, we are unable to take up the integration with Notebook right away. We will surely pass on your feedback to the relevant teams.
      Regarding sync with Blackberry, we suggest you follow the instructions here: http://zsync.zohosites.com/BlackBerry.html. In case you need more assistance, drop an email to support@zohomail.com with your device details. We will be glad to help!

  44. M.

    For several months now, we have been getting these: “>” on our email. On long trails, we get “>>>>>>>>”. I haven’t had that happen in email since the 90s. Is there a way to get rid of them for good?

    • Mary Infantina

      We suggest you try our new interface, in case you are still using the old interface. In our new interface, we no longer add ‘>’ when replying/ forwarding emails. Do let us know your feedback!

  45. shashank

    This is good

    • Mary Infantina

      Thanks!

      • Vamsi Krisha J

        Hi, We are trying to restore outgoing emails from our mail id, but its been zero help from Zoho! Can you please help us out? We need immediate access to sort out our email id which has to send more emails.

        Looking for help!

        • Mary Infantina

          Hey Vamsi, We are sorry that you have problems with your email. I have requested our support team to look into this and sort it out as early as possible!

    Night Mode is beautiful!

    • Mary Infantina

      We are glad you liked it, Freddy! Thanks for the compliments!

  47. rfdrosco

    that’s all great and wonderful – but where is what we all need most, the “i’ve got mail” audible notification??

    • Mary Infantina

      Thanks! We will try to provide audible new mail notifications in future!
