In this guide, you’ll learn how to connect your Zoho email account to Snov.io using SMTP credentials and server settings.
Snov.io lets you connect your own business or personal mailbox and send email campaigns through your email provider’s servers to have total control over your sender account’s performance.
If you have a Zoho email account, you can take advantage of its emailing capabilities and connect it to Snov.io.
The process of connecting involves three primary steps:
1) Getting your Zoho SMTP credentials
2) Adding a new email account in Snov.io
3) Configuring optional settings
Before you start, make sure that IMAP Access is enabled in your Zoho settings.
1) Getting your SMTP credentials
The first step is to obtain the SMTP username and password for your Zoho email account.
The SMTP username should be the login or email address associated with your Zoho account and is used to authenticate with the SMTP server.
The SMTP password is the password used to log in to your Zoho account.
If you have a personal email with Zoho, your username will be in the format firstname.lastname@example.org.
If your domain is hosted with Zoho, your username will be in the format email@example.com.
To authorize connection, you might need an app-specific password if two-factor authentication is enabled in Zoho security settings.
2) Adding a new email account
In the second step, you’ll need to enter your SMTP and IMAP settings on the email account configuration page.
- Go to the Email Accounts page.
This page will display a list of all the email accounts that you have connected to Snov.io.
Start adding a new account by clicking the Add email account button.
- Choose Zoho from the email service providers list.
The email account settings page will open.
Note: Please select an appropriate provider so that we can suggest default server settings for you during the setup process.
