Thanks a lot ! The plugin works OK! If it is for a wordpress "Contact form 7":1- Install the "zoho mail" plugin, so that the Authorization Redirect URI is generated2- You must access api-console de zoho website.3- Choose the server option after entering and paste the "Authorization Redirect URI" that was generated in wordpress. With these data, the "Client Id" and the "Client Secret" that the plugin requests in the admin of the wordpress site are generated.

I spent almost one full day to find that reply-to custom header is not supported. So if you wish to set a different email to deliver the reply to, use the FluentSMTP instead of this one. Just saved you a couple of hours! Cheers!

I am a (satisfied) Zoho Mail customer and this plug-in sorted my SMTP problems from my Wordpress site in an easy and graceful manner. I had to apply the configuration twice, for some reason, but worked perfectly after that. Great work Zoho!
