Adding Details from Zoho Mail

Most customer interactions take place through email. Zoho Mail provides an easy way to collect contact information and store it in your Zoho CRM account. When a prospective customer sends an email, you do not need to manually add the Lead information in your Zoho CRM account. You can add the email address to CRM as a lead from within Zoho Mail. In addition to this, you can also add customer details as Contacts in CRM and create related Tasks, Events, Notes, and Deals for the contacts. This option will be available only if you activate the Zoho Mail Add-on feature.
