  1. Outgoing Mail Control collect sample of offending emails

    When Outgoing Mail Control detects a user abusing the sending limits, it would be helpful for the emails that are sent beyond the limit to be sampled in some way: To: From: Subject: Headers, possibly the first line of the email, origination ip address of the offending email.

    This information can help the admin decide if it was the user just sending to many emails or if the email has been compromised and needs to be addressed.

    As a similar but different idea, emails beyond the limit could be cached for a short time to allow the administrator to decide…

  3. Block users from re-using old password, especially for mailboxes

    System could remember a certain number of old passwords (admin configurable) and prevent user from selecting these again.

    Have had more cases than I'd like to admit where customer re-used a previously compromised password. If Plesk remembered the last x passwords used by that account it would help.

    Also adding ability so Plesk checks a server configurable password blacklist before accepting customers new selection would be appreciated.

  4. Enable email subject and keywords to be blocked in spamfilter

    Allow users and admin to select subject lines and keywords as well as keywords in the email body to be added to the spamfilter blacklist.

    Currently spammers are just changing domains and sending the same email templates.

  5. Allow email accounts to change their own Webmail/SMTP/POP3 passwords without creating a Plesk user

    We have lots of staff members who need an email address, but should not have access to Plesk in any way at all. Currently, the only way for them to choose a password, is to choose one and tell the Plesk Administrator what that password is, and have the Plesk Administrator configure their password for them. This is extremely unsecure. Something as simple as a 'send password reset link' button in the Email account configuration would work. This button would send an email to that account, and allow the email user to click on the link to change their Webmail/SMTP/POP3…

    By default Plesk offer webmail service for each email account. Email user can easily change his password in webmail settings.

    But anyway, thank you for your input! We will consider this functionality in case that Plesk no offer webmail in upcoming releases, if it will be popular.
    Everyone, please continue voting for this feature if you consider it important.

  6. sort, archive or filter (not spam) email on server directly when received

    I'm using different (imap) clients on different devices to read emails. Many of them can be sorted / filtered / archived in specific subfolders by subject, sender or similar.
    Most - but not all - clients can be configured to do so - but this means also to reconfigure several clients on rule changes.

    So i'd like to suggest the possibility to handle emails on receiving on the server.
    E.g:
    - if sender ends with "domain.foo" or subject contains "project bar" then move to folder bar and mark as read
    - if sender is "foo@domain.bar" forward to "…

  9. Enable fetchmail feature

    I would like to enable and configure fetchmail on mailbox level. Main reason is easy migration for customers to new hosting providers including moving mails from existing mail servers.

    "fetchmail" is already installed together with PLESK, needs just to get properly configured.

  10. disable automatic greylisting activation for new domains

    If i add a new domain in a subscription, greylisting is automaticly activated, just because it's enabled on the server.

    It would be much better if customers have to activate greylisting manually in their settings, like the spamfilter.

    A workaround with Event Manager is possible but a bit inconvenient.

  11. Don't send Auto-Reply when message detected as spam

    Don't send Auto-Reply when message detected as spam

    When a mail account has Auto-Reply and Spamassassin enabled, the Auto-Reply function should read the x-spam header and, if the incoming message was found to be spam, the automatic response should not be sent.

    At the moment I often see Automatic replies stuck in the outgoing mail queue because they're being sent to spammers. This is silly!

  12. Implement DNS Whitelists

    Plesk does not currently support DNS Whitelists like it does RBLs, such as the list at dnswl.org. There needs to be a way to add this from the Plesk UI.
    The Postfix main.cf config directive is permitdnswlclient.
    Whenever a Plesk upgrade happens, the setting, if added is removed and needs to be added back manually.

  13. Add to Server-Wide Black List and White List block by IP adress and DOMAIN name.

    Server-Wide Black List blocking only by domain name is insufficient, because spammers can spoof real sender adress. Not every sender has SPF record configured. And also email White List needs whitelist by domain name to block common spammers with no fixed IP.

  14. Possibility to activate DKIM and DomainKey without active local DNS

    Please make possible generating and activating DKIM/DomainKey without having active local DNS server. Consider following situation:

    You have a website that use as sender your domain when sending email and you are want to follow best practices in order to reach inbox, but this domain uses another server for DNS (cloudflare for example, godday, etc.). In this case you need to have DKIM/DomainKey signed mails without the need to activate local DNS server. Also mail management could be set off for that domain, but mails still should be able to be signed.

    I believe that this scenrario is real and…

  15. DKIM - needed to import own keys

    DKIM - needed to import own keys

    It is not fair solution that Plesk generate a private key, and i cannot extract and date them in a seperate Backup

    Please let us import our own DKIM keys

  17. Show currently/recently mail sending scripts

    Use case: One of our customer has uploaded files to his ftp server in a public internet cafe and his password was stolen. Afterwards there was a mass spam mail sending script on his webserver. Our server has been landed in black lists. It was very difficult to find and correct it.

  18. Mail Delivery Reports

    Hi

    I have tried to see if this idea has been mentioned but have not found one yet.

    For a long time with my hosting provider i have been using WHM and since we have had to move to a new host and start to use plesk we are finding it great but missing a certain feature which we think could help other people and their clients as we get asked if we can check this from time to time.

    Once feature we thought was great in WHM was the Mail Delivery Reports If somthing like this can be implemented…
