Send your emails from a different From address

You can send emails from your apps from a different email address than the one you signed-up with. To do so, you'll need to verify it first — ​ensure that you own it and that an email address isn't being used without consent. Upon verification, it gets added as a Sender Email in your account. You can use these email addresses to send emails from all the apps (built using Creator) in your Zoho account. You can even use them in send mail tasks in your Creator apps' Deluge scripts.

Availability of this Sender Email feature and the number of sender email addresses that you can add to your account, are subject to your subscription.

Things to know

The number of email notifications that you can send depends on your subscription. Refer to usage details to learn more.
