Add Email »Add Email through Zoho Mail

Want to add email to your custom domain through Zoho Mail? This page explains how to do it. Currently Zoho Mail “Free” is free for up to twenty-five email accounts and does not require signing up with a credit card. You can sign up here.

You can find directions for other email providers on our main Add Email page. Note that Zoho.com is generally available in the U.S. Other countries may have different suffixes, such as Zoho.eu, which will have slightly different instructions.

  1. Sign up for Zoho Mail with your domain and setup your account.
  2. Zoho will present a screen that looks like this: 
  3. Select WordPress as your domain’s DNS Manager from the dropdown list. Note: yourdomain.com in this example will reflect your actual domain name.
  4. On the next screen, you’ll be presented with a unique code for your domain beginning with the letters zb… Highlight and copy this code.
    Domain_Setup
  5. Keep the Zoho web page open, and open your WordPress.com site dashboard in another browser window or tab.
  6. Go to Domains and click on the relevant domain.
    Domain_Management
  7. Select Name Servers and DNS.
    Domain_Management_Edit_DNS
  8. Select Zoho Mail and paste your unique code into the box that appears below.
  9. Hit the button that says Set up Zoho Mail.

Voila! Your email is set up. Zoho’s walkthrough has a couple more steps that you can complete if you want, but you’re done with the setup in your WordPress.com dashboard.
