Configure Zoho Mail in Zoho Workerly


Set up email account via POP3

Zoho Workerly lets you configure a Zoho Mail account or a third party email account via POP3.

An important point to note here is that Zoho Workerly uses Zoho Mail to fetch emails and display them within Workerly. Therefore, whether you wish to configure a Zoho Mail account or a third party email account via POP3, it is mandatory for you to have a Zoho Mail account.

  • If you already have a Zoho Mail account, your existing mailbox will be displayed under the POP3 settings.
    If you do not have a Zoho Mail account, you will be prompted to configure an account from inside Zoho Workerly. Upon successful configuration, this new mailbox will be added under the POP3 settings.

Once you have a Zoho Mail account, you can add multiple mailboxes (whether Zoho Mail or other services) under POP3 accounts. Note that only one mailbox can be active at a given point of time.

To set up a custom email account via POP3

  1. Go to Setup > General > Email Settings.
  2. In the Add POP3 Account page, enter the following details:
    • Account Name: Enter a name for the mailbox.
    • Email address: Enter the email address you wish to configure.
    • Incoming server: Enter the incoming server of the email. For example, pop.gmail.com (for a GMail account) or pop.zoho.com (for a Zoho Mail account).
      If you are not sure about this detail, check with your system administrator.
    • Port: Enter the port number. For example, 995.
    • Select SSL, if required.
    • Username: Enter the username or email address of the desired account.
    • Password: Enter the password of the email address configured.
      If you have enabled two-factor authentication for the account, you must enter the app specific password and not the regular password.
    • If required, select the Use the same credentials for the outgoing mail server checkbox.
      The outgoing server details will also be populated. If not, provide the outgoing server details.
    • Delete Message Setting: These settings determine when the emails in the server should be deleted. Select a desired option

      Note

      • If you do not use any POP clients other than Zoho Mail, your Username can just be username@gmail.com.
      • If you are using multiple POP clients, you need to tag the Username as 'recent:username@gmail.com'. Also, make sure that Leave messages in the server is selected for the Delete message settings option. Please note that this is applicable only to Gmail users.
  3. Under the Email Sharing Permissions  section, select a desired option.
    • Public - Complete Sharing
    • Custom - Record-level Sharing
    • Private -Only me
  4. Click Add Account. 
    The configured account will be added to the list of POP3 accounts.

  5. Under Advanced Settings, click the Consolidate all my customers emails in a single place inside Zoho mail check box, if required.
