Zoho Mail vs Yandex Mail
#11
Common sense for me says that Yandex would be better of the two because of its wealth of resources that Zoho doesn't have. Like Zoho isn't in its class. Only worry I would have would have been DNS propagation and speed as at one stage the criticism was that Yandex is only really beneficial for those situated close to Russia and Eastern Europe, but that is no longer the case. Yandex even offers free DNS. One could argue it is Russian, but one wouldn't know that when one works with the Website. One of the best global Websites, better and more user friendly than Kaspersky for sure.

I feel slightly guilty to use Yandex though, like up to a year or so ago I was fighting anything with a dot.ru. Like so many attacks and exploits came from dot.ru origins. Can't help but wonder who the owners of Yandex are.

you don't have to use DNS from yandex to use their mail service. Setup was fast in my experience.

Yandex is easy to use and allows you to use more than anyone else would.

Thanks Scath.  Apologies, I probably didn't express myself well.  What I was trying to say was that Yandex is a giant in comparison with Zoho and that it is in much more than Zoho is like DNS, etc.  I.e. it is in Google's league and Google's competitor.  Because of that it would be logical that it would be the better of the two as a mail host as Zoho is much smaller in comparison with many less resources at its disposal - it's not a real competitor of Yandex.

I am currently testing out Yandex for my newly bought domains (I took advantage of the $2 domain registrations netfirms was offering), while my client/friend is testing out Yandex for his own domain. Let's see, I should have a review sometime in the next 3-6months.

As a reply to Dean, Zoho is also a big corporation, founded in 1995, older than Yandex and Google themselves. Their services are more into SAAS, mainly for businesses... so I do not agree with you about Yandex being "much more than Zoho"

Pros: A lot of freemium integrations, not only emails. They are offering: crm, docs, notebook, projects, bugtracker, password manager, meetings, and basically all you need for business needs.
Cons: Only 25 users, 5gb each. USA is watching you.

i choose yandex mail becuase there is more features than zoho . zoho mail you get capped email usage and storage problem . also there is more security risk in zoho mails . in yandex mail we get also yandex disk . that was offering 10 gb of space and more like google . we can sync facebook twitter social networks storage with yandex disk that was so nice for me . they sync very nicely . yandex is also easy to manage than zoho mail . yandex is just like google . zoho mail is only a service

Zoho offers its own google office (slides/sheets/docs) equivalent... and I'm not sure what you mean by "more security risk". Source, please?

Thanks for correcting me Xinen.  Just goes to show how easily one can get the wrong idea.  My experience is with Zoho.  I found it easy to set up and I didn't really get as much spam.  It worked out OK with plenty of add on services but as you say, it only allows 25 users.  I still have to test Yandex. I'm planning to do so with my new VPS that I started two weeks ago (after HR had mentioned Yandex in another thread).  I loaded VestaCP without a mail server and am planning to try out Yandex.  Hence why I'm watching this thread.

Yandex Mail is obviously a notch above Zoho. It has got superior service in almost all aspects.

But if you are thinking of sending marketting mails then maybe Yandex fails to deliver in Primary folder and more often than not the mail falls in the Promotions tab. This is not always the case with Zoho.
P.S.: This observation is made by me and I have used both the platforms.
I would like to thank freevps.us for the knowldge i gained through your forum.

Yesterday I spent a few hours with setting up a new VPS with VestaCP with Zoho or Yandex.  I say Zoho or Yandex, as I basically started with both at the same time.  I already had a Zoho free account, and then since I'm new to Yandex, opened a Yandex account.  Like it's interesting how similar both are at that point.  Next both of them wanted me to verify my domain.  Here there was a HUGE difference on  the PLUS side of Zoho in terms of speed.  Like with Zoho it instantly recognized my domain, and then when I verified it, it was instantly verified.  With Yandex there was a delay, like about 30 minutes, both in recognizing my domain and then after it recognized it there was another delay for verification.  I then continued with Zoho of course for now since one can only work with one set of MX Records at a time.   My next VPS I will try Yandex with VestaCP for a better comparison.  For now I just have good things to say about Zoho.  Like everything worked instantly.  All the e-mail accounts I created worked immediately.  Only hickup was when I had to create MX Records in VestaCP, but that was because of a known VestaCP bug that had nothing to do with Zoho Mail.

What was nice out of this experience is Zoho introducing me to MXtoolbox.com.  Now that is a super cool tool to check what MX Records one has for any given domain, and I was also able to verify instant propagation of the new Zoho MX Records too.  Zoho is good.  Hopefully with my next VPS I'll be in a better position for a more decent comparison with Yandex.  I have to figure out also why there's a delay in DNS propagation.  Could be the Dallas HUB or way it propagates to Dallas is much further to Yandex than Zoho is?  Like my VPS location and setup is much more in sync with Zoho setup than it is with Yandex?  So there are many other factors one has to take into consideration when one compares Zoho Mail with Yandex Mail.  It can't be a straight up and down comparison.
