  1. Smarthost/External SMTP

    It would be nice to have an external SMTP (smarthost) ability for a per-domain basis (most mail services have this)

    We use this for external scanning, data leak prevention and more.

    Can this be be done?

    • Webmail - Enable users to edit out of office (auto-response) message in webmail directly

      I'm not sure if any webmail option right now allows the email user to update their out of office / auto response message. I think the email user has to login to Plesk to be able to edit that right now (which is annoying).

      Anyone have any suggestion on this?

      • Show reason of deferred message in mail queue

        Actually it's possible to show deferred messages headers in : Tools and settings > mail server settings > mail queue

        It would be very useful if it's possible to show the reason why the message is deffered or stuck in the queue (/var/spool/postfix/defer).

        • Rspamd support

          There is relatively new anti-spam tool - Rspamd. I think, it worth to be integrated with Plesk as an alternative to SpamAssassin. It shows better performance as the author says here http://rspamd.com/misc/2016/03/03/rspamd-performance.html

          • Plesk SpamAssassin configuration options

            It would be much better if server-wide and per-mailbox options were available in Plesk to add SpamAssassin rules.

            SpamAssassin can be configured by the command line, but this is difficult for many of us.

            • Allow customization of /etc/postfix/main.cf

              I want to be able to set the recipient_delimiter. But, currently, any customizations to main.cf get overwritten.

                • 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…

                  • Add "Move to spam folder" option in Windows (currently available in Linux)

                    There is an spam filtering option to "Move to spam folder XXXX" on Linux, but not on Windows (Plesk 11+).

                    Unfortunately, horde doesn't work so well and every time when a message with broken header arrives, horde displays "Invalid Address" and no subject to all inbox messages. The described fix in https://kb.plesk.com/en/121175 doesn't work in this cases, forcing us to find the broken message manually (or scripting something to do the dirty job).

                    This feature should exists in Windows env as in Linux.

                    • Add Exchange Server 2013 Integration

                      I would love to use exchange server 2013 while using plesk panel. Exchange server is by far the most superior email server for windows and would be a great addition to plesk panel.

                      I believe that there is also an open API or an easy way to send commands which would make it a lot easier to integrate with.

                      • Have an option to deliver email addressed to VERP-style email addresses.

                        Postfix already has the option, but it doesn't seem to be supported on Plesk.

                        I want to use VERP so I can automatically process bounce messages with a script. I send out bulk email with a return-path like bounces+uid-john=example.com@ourdomain.com and I want the bounces to be delivered to bounces@ourdomain.com

                        Postfix has the configuration parameter recipient_delimiter. If I set that in /etc/postfix/main.cf, the server accepts the email and passes it to plesk_virtual. But then it is silently discarded instead of being delivered to the bounces mailbox.

                        The only way I see with the current set up to deliver these messages…

                        • show the last time a mailbox was accessed by the user

                          This would allow you to see mailboxes that are no longer in use.

                          • Allow using a centralized SmarterMail Server for BOTH LINUX and WINDOWS Plesk installations

                            The implementation of the centralized smartermail in plesk onyx for windows is good, but it should also be possible to integrate this feature into the linux edition.

                            Many hosters provide both windows and linux hosting with ONE centralised mail solution. Since the integration for winodws is already done I suppose it shouldn't be too hard to integrate it into the linux version as well since smartermail is completely API based.

                            • 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…

                              • Complete DMARC Support

                                The DMARC support in Plesk Onyx 17.5.3 ist incomplete. If an incoming email is rejected due to a DMARC fail there is no mailer daemon generated to inform the sender of this email.

                                Please add this important feature to DMARC support. Otherwise it would not be usable for most customers.

                                  • Redirect from HTTP to HTTPS for secured webmails

                                    You should place a redirect from http://webmail.domain.tld to https. Even the option "Hosting Settings > Permanent SEO-safe 301 redirect from HTTP to HTTPS" won't redirect the webmail; in any case these should be two separate options as the website may not support HTTPS yet.

                                    • use Plesk as Backup MX server

                                      Please allow usage of Plesk Onyx (postfix) as Backup MX server

                                      at the moment it is not possible to configure Plesk Onyx as Backup MX server, so even I have multiple Plesk servers available, when main production server is down, all e-mails in that time-frame is lost :((

                                      if we could setup Plesk as Backup MX server, that would give us some redundancy so e-mail should be fine on backup mx server, until primary mx comes back online

                                      • Roundcube Settings Sync

                                        Many of our clients have requested the ability to manage their email configuration options through webmail, rather than via Plesk. I'd like the option to allow mail users to manage their account themselves via a Plesk Roundcube plugin that provides the following options:

                                        1. Setting up an Autoresponder
                                        2. Configuring forwarding / redirects
                                        3. Changing their password

                                        Others that would be handy as well:

                                        A. Managing server-side mail filtering (whenever this becomes available in Plesk at all)
                                        B. Spamassassin training

                                        • Set a senders email address for Plesk notifications

                                          I am sending mails from an external server, my Plesk Servers do not even have mail setup. Plesk offers the option to send notification mails (like backup errors,...) using an external SMTP server, but all mails get sent using the mail address
                                          root@servername.domain.tld

                                          My SMTP server does not have this mail address or even domain setup. I would like to set a custom email address for Plesk to send mails from in order to not have to set up a domain and mail address for every Plesk server.
