Connections in Zoho Mail

You can integrate third-party or other Zoho applications with Zoho Mail by setting up Connections. In the My Connections section, you can view all connections created by you or your administrator. Using these Connections, you can extend your Zoho Mailbox's integration capabilities using the predefined services we provided or establish custom services.


Zoho Mail also provides connectors for your e-widgets available on the right-hand side menu of your Zoho Mailbox.

Add Predefined Connections

To establish a connection between a service we have already defined,

  1. Choose the service of your choice under the available list of services.
  2. After picking your service enter the connection details.
    • Enter the Connection Name and the Connection Link name of your choice. Your Link name has to be unique to the connection because it will be used in Deluge integration tasks and invoke URL scripts to authenticate.
    • Select the necessary Scopes for the connection. Scopes are provided by the respective third-party applications. To know more refer to their help documentation.
    • You can choose to authenticate using the Credentials of the logged-in user by toggling the option ON.
  3. You will be taken to a different browser tab to authenticate your preferred service. Click Connect.
  4. Upon clicking Connect, you will be redirected to your selected service's login page. Authenticate your account using the login credentials and provide the permissions required.

You will be successfully connected with your preferred third-party service.

Add Custom Connections

To establish a custom connection,

  1. Navigate to Custom Services in New Connection under DRE Connectors.
  2. Click Create New Service.
  3. Enter the Service Name and Service Link name and select the Authentication Type of your choice.
  4. Select the authentication Param Type and enter the Parameter Key and the Parameter field Display Name.
  5. You can add more parameters by clicking the + icon and delete the added parameter by hovering over the param and clicking the Delete icon.
  6. After giving the necessary details, click Create Service.

After successful authorization, your connection will be created and added to the My Connections list.


You can access and modify the data of your third-party service using the invokeURL task in Deluge or transfer and synchronize your data across Zoho using Integration tasks.
