Zoho Email Configuration

It is highly recommended that before you follow these instructions, enable IMAP in your ZOHO account email settings.  Instructions are HERE.

Note that if you have having trouble setting up your account, try this:  Do not enter your email password while you are in the “setup” page for your email app.  Instead, leave the email blank and enter the password the first time you check your Zoho inbox.
