Here is noted that, you will get only one email, like Arjun@goyllo.com, so be careful, when you choose email address.

Step 2: Verify Your Domain

Now, you need to verify your domain name, and there are three ways to verify 1) CNAME, 2) TEXT Record, and 3) HTML method. If you already know, how to manage Domain Panel, then CNAME and Text Record method will be easier for you. Otherwise, use HTML method, if you have full control of your website. (Blogger and Tumbler don’t allow uploading files into the root directory, so you should use CNAME or Text Record Method).

Now, hit verify button, But if you get any error, then wait for a few minutes/hours, because it takes some time to propagate DNS properly, so just wait, and then click again to verify. If you still get an error, then you need to use other methods like Text method or HTML method.

Step 3: Add MX Record in your domain panel

So when you verify your domain successfully, you will get this page, to add MX records.

Zoho is using two MX Records at this time mx.zoho.com and mx2.zoho.com. So now, again go to your domain panel, and delete/edit the default MX Record.

Do not forget to add priority setting carefully. Here is my screenshot of GoDaddy MX Record Settings.
