IMAP/SMTP servers — for custom domains: imappro.zoho.com / smtp.zoho.com
IMAP port — you can leave it empty or use 993.
SMTP port — 465 or 587.
Please make sure Two Factor Authentication is turned off before you start connecting your mailbox.
Here are the most common IMAP and SMTP Server settings:
@zoho.com → IMAP: imap.zoho.com, Port 993, SMTP: smtp.zoho.com, Port 465
@zohomail.eu → IMAP: imap.zoho.eu, Port 993, SMTP: smtp.zoho.eu, Port 465
@customdomain → IMAP: imappro.zoho.com, Port 993, SMTP: smtp.zoho.com, Port 465

Deliverability is the number of emails that have reached the recipients' inboxes compared to the number of sent messages overall. The goal is to have as many of your emails land in your prospects' inboxes rather than going to spam folders. To ensure high deliverability rates, make sure you set up SPF and DKIM correctly. Click here to learn more about the importance of deliverability.
Also, don't forget about the domain and email address warm-up.
9. Configure SPF records
Please add SPF records to your DNS if you use a custom domain ([email protected]) to send your emails.
To do so, follow the steps described in this Zoho help article. Below you will find the record which you need to add to your domain:
v=spf1 include:zoho.com -all
