POP or Post Office Protocol enables you to access the emails in any email clients of your choice. POP performs one way email retrieval and there is no sync between the email clients and server. Zoho Mail can be configured in any standard POP email client providing the POP and SMTP server settings.
You need to enable POP access of the account, before configuring the Zoho Mail account in any email client. The step by step instructions for some of the popular email clients are provided in the links below.
You need to enable POP access of the Zoho Mail account, to start accessing the account in other POP clients. You can enable POP access for all emails from the beginning or from the particular day.
You can configure Zoho Mail account in any standard POP client using the POP details provided below. The complete Zoho account email address should be provided correctly in both the email address field and the user name field. In case you have Two Factor Authentication turned on, generate and use an application specific password in the email client.

If you are a Federated Sign In user, you will not have a 'Zoho' password for your account. Use the Forgot Password link in the accounts.zoho.com page, to generate Zoho specific password for your account in Zoho. The Federated Login credentials will not work for POP/ IMAP/ Active Sync access.
You can choose to include Spam messages for POP retrieval. Zoho Mail provides you the option to include Spam messages or to retrieve only Ham mails for POP retrieval. If you rely completely on your email client, and when some of the emails which you receive from your known contacts, get classified as Spam due to various reasons, you can inclide Spam mails for POP retrieval.
You can choose to delete emails from Server or leave the messages in Server, when the email downloaded via POP is marked for deletion. When you choose 'Delete emails from Server' in the POP clients, the client marks the email for deletion in the server and removes it from the POP queue. However, in Zoho Mail, you can choose to retain the email in server even if the client marks the email for deletion. The default option is 'Leave messages in server'.
The emails will be deleted from the server only if you choose the option 'Delete mails from server when the POP client issues a delete command'.
You can disable POP access of your account, anytime you choose to stop POP retrieval.
