  1. 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.

  2. 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…

  5. 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!

  6. 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.

  7. Introduce Email Signature/Disclaimer management

    Plesk controlled signature/disclaimer management

    1)per user
    2)per URL
    3)server wide

    plesk or email in drop down and in the text field

    1. signature at user-level (user@sld.tld) | eg: Regards Mr. Abc
    2. signature at domain-level (*@sld.tld) | eg: Company xyz, Address
    3. signature at server-level | eg: "Nessage was tested against spam by xyz-freemail.com"

    Every "snippet" should be added from level | in this example:
    "regards
    Mr. Abc
    Company xyz
    Address
    Message was tested against spam by xyz-freemail.com"

    A client approached me with exactly this request
    what I could get working was the following:

  10. 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.

  11. Blacklist of recipient target addresses in the spamfilter (useful for wildcard mailboxes)

    Hello,
    I miss the functionality of managing a blacklist of target email addresses in case you have a catchall email domain.
    In most cases, the originator address of spam emails changes every time, but the target address is frequently used.
    So with this functionality, I could drop out invalid recipient addresses, without giving up the setup to use catchall all emails <everything>@your-domain.
    This is useful to register webshops or community everytime using a separate target email address to distinguish incoming email if they are valid or not.

  12. Set start date on autoreply

    It would be useful to be able to configure auto replies so that they start automatically on a specific date.

  13. Custom Email Server Help Tips

    The settings for mail servers have a help tip in the email addresses management page, and in the users' Plesk Account pages.

    If a Plesk server is set up strictly as a mail server, and has DNS handled remotely, the settings in the Help Tips can be incorrect.

    Currently the tips only show the server as the root domain even if the mail server's actual DNS points (as an example) mail.domain.tld to the server, requiring the settings to include the subdomain.

    If I add the domain as "subdomain.domain.tld" in settings, then the server tips are correct but the email addresses…

  15. Dovecot: mdbox and alternate storage support

    http://forum.odin.com/threads/dovecot-mdbox-and-altmove-support-in-plesk.334620/

    It would be really handy if we could, via Plesk panel or some cli utility, o switch from Maildir to mdbox as mailbox storage format and enable alternate storage for old emails. This way we can optimize the disk usage by using the fast storage media for recent emails, while the old stuff can go on a slower, cheaper media. Will also help a lot in growing our mail customer base without forking out ridiculous amounts of money for expensive fast disks arrays to keep up with the growth rate.

  16. SPAM protection - Check if sender Mail domain exists

    For better SPAM Protection it would be nice to add an Option to let the Mailserver check, whether senders Domain is existing or even not.

    I got Mails from "Domain.xyz" wich is of Course no valid TLD.
    "Reply-To" is of Course an valid Mail adress.

    On request, my Data-Center told me they could activate that Option, but while Plesk is Controlling that config, on next Plesk update the Change gets lost.

    So: Could you add in Plesk that Feature as an Option?

  18. Roundcube mobile/tablet skin default

    It seems difficult to manually install a mobile skin on Roundcube, and if it should succeed the plesk would overwrite the config made on updates. The default skin provided with plesk should support mobile devices, as this is an important feature nowadays.

  19. 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…
