Integrate Zoho Books with Email

Your interaction with your customers and vendors doesn’t just stop with you sending quotes or invoices. Apart from that, you might also be sending them emails from your personal email address, thanking them for their purchase or sending them important documents to be signed and so on.

Any transaction that you send out using Zoho Books would be a system generated mail. This means that your customers will have to reply to your personal email address. There is a chance that you might miss these emails in the huge stack of emails coming in everyday.

Not anymore. With the new Email Integration feature, you can now add your personal email address to your Zoho Books organization, and the mails between this email address and the contact’s email address will be fetched directly into the Mails section under your Contact in Zoho Books.

This document will walk you through the following:
