Specific Instructions for Outlook IMAP

Sent Items

By default, our SMTP Servers automatically place sent emails in the Sent folder. However, when you send an email with Outlook, it also saves another copy in your Sent folder there

To avoid duplicates in the Sent folder, change the following settings:

In Zoho Mail: 

You can turn off the copy created by the server in the SMTP settings. Refer here for instructions.

However, you can also change the settings in your Outlook application. 

In Outlook:

  • From the Tools menu, select the Accounts option.
  • Select your Zoho Mail account from the accounts listed, and click Advanced.
  • In the Folders tab, select the Don't store a copy of sent messages checkbox.

Downloading full messages

By default, Outlook downloads just the Sender, Subject, and the Date Information (headers) when syncing email. It downloads the full message only when you click on that email. You can change this behavior by changing the Send/ Receive Settings.  

  • From the Tools menu, select the Accounts option.
  • Select your Zoho Mail account from the accounts listed, and click Advanced.
  • In the Server tab, uncheck the Download Headers only option.
