How do I add Zoho records to my DNS settings?

Please reference Zoho's documentation about adding DNS records before adding them in your Cloudflare DNS settings.

Zoho MX DNS records

After reading the documentation from Zoho about these records, then please add the MX records in your Cloudflare DNS settings in the following format:

MX yourdomain.com mx.zohomail.com (set the priority as 10)

MX yourdomain.com mx2.zohomail.com (set the priority as 20)

Note: Replace yourdomain.com with your actual site name.

Zoho SPF records

If you are being asked to add a SPF record to your zone file, then you would want to add the record in your Cloudflare DNS settings in the following format:

TXT yourdomain.com v=spf1 mx include:zoho.com ~all

Note: Replace yourdomain.com with your actual site name.

Accessing mail via a Zoho custom URL

If you are going to be accessing your mail through a custom Zoho URL, then you will need to add a CNAME record to your Cloudflare DNS settings in the following format:

CNAME mail is an alias of business.zoho.com

Adding a Zoho CNAME for domain validation

If you need to do a domain validation record, then you will need to add a unique record that Zoho gives for your domain in your Cloudflare DNS settings in the following format:

CNAME zb******** is an alias of business.zoho.com

Note: The zb record is unique for each domain. Please make sure you add the corresponding record and unique zb verification code they give you.
