(4) If you want your FastMail account to fetch the newsletters, you must first go to your Zoho Mail account to "enable" POP access to the account. To enable POP access, see the following:

(5) After you have enabled POP access to your Zoho Mail account, go to your FastMail account and configure a POP Link for your Zoho Mail account by using the following settings:

Incoming Server Name:
Port: 995
Require SSL: Yes

Also, be sure to "leave" messages in your Zoho Mail account (that is, leave them on the Zoho Mail server).

Remember, steps 4 and 5 above are "optional." You can choose "not" to have FastMail retrieve your newsletters. I included steps 4 and 5 solely to save you from having to log in to your Zoho Mail account to read your newsletters.

Should you have any questions, feel free to ask.
Congratulations, noclue, you've done step 1. You're making progress! Now do steps 2 and 3--have your newsletters addressed to your new Zoho Mail account and see if they arrive there. If they do, you can move on to other steps, but only if you wish.

By the way, what are your first impressions of your new account? Do you like the interface? Do you find it easy to navigate? Is it cosmetically appealing to you?

Finally, send some test emails to your Zoho Mail account and see if they arrive quickly.
