Zoho Mail came out of private beta today with some impressive features already lined up: The service has an iPhone app and an offline mode. Gmail still doesn’t have offline support, prompting Read Write Web’s Richard MacManus to write: "Innovative web office start-up Zoho has beaten Google to the punch again."

Stan Schroeder at Mashable describes Zoho as "a sleek, feature-rich client that tries to mary Gmail’s simplicity with the overall look and feel of a full featured desktop email client, such as Outlook."

I interivewed Zoho co-founder Raju Vegesna at TechCrunch50 last month and republished the interview above. I previously blogged about Zoho contending with Google for adoption by General Electric; you can read my post here.
