Home / ZOHOMAIL - NEW Email Policies @ Dec 2017

"Available exclusively with the paid plans" - Error Message + ZOHOMAIL POP3 AND IMAP

Zoho Mail is free and one of most lovable business email solution for small business and personal use. In the post Free Outlook for Custom domain and Google Apps, this is the most reliable and free service available. But last week ( Dec 2017 ), some of best / paid Class feature removed from free account plan( 25 Email ). This changes was shocking for user like us. We are using zoho mail from around 2010 and always try to refer each and everyone if they not able to pay more and wanted to reduce IT budget. We always challenge people to stop paying to Google or any paid Email service provider and shift to zoho mail. Most of time we shifted / Migrated mail service for many companies/individuals free of cost, just to show our skills and expertise in website industry.
