Zoho Mail is a cloud hosted email platform for business and professional use and offers plenty of storage with POP and IMAP access. It helps users organise their emails with its comprehensive search options and by identifying key messages and contacts, so that business users can communicate effectively. Its capabilities include multiple domain management, a control panel, policy management and email migration. Over the last few years the trend for most small to midsize businesses has been to run email as a third-party, hosted service rather than an in-house maintained resource and here Relativity looks at Zoho Mail as an option.

The First Email In 1971

It’s true that most companies couldn’t function without an email service, so it’s important that the version you choose is right for your business. Email has certainly evolved since Ray Tomlinson, a computer engineer sent the first email message in 1971 and changed the way that the world would communicate. However, email remained predominantly an onsite service until the mid to late 2000s.
