Zoho provides a single-sign-on and hence once you log into any Zoho application, you can directly access the other applications in the same browser using different tabs. Both organization users and Zoho personal users can log in to Zoho Mail using this link.
In case you've forgotten your password, or if an authentication error shows up, follow this help page.
The Organization Administrators create users from the Control Panel using the Add User option.
The administrator chooses the first time password for the user while creating the account. The users who log in for the first time need to use the login email address and the password information provided by the administrators and log in from this link. After login, the users can change their Password from the Accounts section.
Personal users would've chosen the email address and the password while creating the account for themselves. Personal users can also use their phone numbers provided during sign up for logging in to their accounts. They can log in to Zoho Mail using the credentials that they entered.
An organization Administrator or Super Administrator can log in and access the Control Panel using this link. They can enter their Zoho account credentials and access the Control Panel. Alternatively, if they are already logged in their Zoho Mail account, they can click the Control Panel link at the top of their mailbox.
Zoho Mail provides the email service for business accounts to get custom domain based email addresses for all the users in the organization. To Sign Up for custom domain based email address like firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com, choose any of the plans from the Zoho Mail Pricing page and click Sign Up under the plan.
If you want to Sign up and need a domain based custom account, you need to have the required permissions to access the DNS Manager of the domain. The entire Email Hosting Process for the domain is explained in this help page.
If you do not have a domain or need the Zoho Mail account only for personal communications, you can 'Sign Up' for the personal account to get a firstname.lastname@example.org email account. You will be asked to choose a unique username, and your mobile number will be required for verification purposes. Make sure that your mobile phone is accessible and active during the sign up procedure.
After entering the required details such as username, password, and mobile number, a confirmation code will be sent to your mobile. Enter the confirmation code to verify your Zoho account. Following the verification process, you will be redirected to your Zoho mailbox. You will be able to send emails only from a verified account.
