  2. 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.

  3. Enable sending e-mails to same domain on external server even if Mail service is enabled for a domain

    As more and more customers move to G Suite and Office 365, there is a need to send authenticated emails from local SMTP to external server that handles same domain.

    Lets say example.com has a WordPress installation that sends notifications, order confirmations, form confirmations, ... to avoid spam and meet best practices, I will create local e-mail account mail@example.com.

    If domain has G Suite hosting info@example.com, emails from mail@example.com will not be delivered, because of Plesk's setup.

    As long as mail is enabled locally, one will get error: Recipient address rejected: User unknown in virtual mailbox table; even…

  6. 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?

  7. Customizable Plesk notification email address

    Plesk has the ability to send notifications. However, with the latest version (v18.0.32) these are sent to my "External email address" of the admin user. But since I as admin user enter my Apple iCloud email "name@icloud.com" there, it is used as both sender and recipient and all notification emails end up in the spam folder of my iCloud mail.
    It would be really great if you could separate the administrator email from the notification email address and change it specifically so that email notifications are sent from "Plesk@domain.tld" to the external administrator email "name@icloud.com

  8. Remove digest-md5 from dovecot and postfix configs

    Seeing as the current implementation does not work with Outlook (and a lot of people use Outlook), it would make sense to remove the digest-md5 option from dovecot and postfix configs. These options keep coming back on a Plesk update so it would better to just remove them completely.

  9. Increase the logs available in MailEnable after log rotation

    When installing Plesk with MailEnable, by default Plesk removes MailEnable logfiles every 24 hours.

    According to this KB (https://support.plesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/115001102353), this functionality is made in purpose to optimize mail statistics, but this is not acceptable.

    Additionally, you are offering the possibility to apply this workaround (https://support.plesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/213397889), but this workaround is not valid for us because we don't want to customize the FTP and HTTP logs location and we have the log files in different disk volumes.

    Please, provide the possibility to configure the log rotation settings for MailEnable respecting our hosting company needs.

  10. Implement push notifications to iOS devices from mail server

    Implement push notifications to iOS devices from mail server.

    Here are details of what I mean: using a patched version of Dovecot and a small Perl script, it's possible to get native Apple push notifications for new mail using the stock iOS mail client. This is accomplished by mimicking Apple's XAPPLEPUSHSERVICE IMAP extension for Dovecot used in macOS Server, whose source code is published on the Apple Open Source website. See more details here: http://bit.ly/2H8NERJ

  11. 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…

    This configuration might be overwritten by an update:

  16. 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.

  18. Add an option to disable reserved mailnames like root, postmaster, anonymous for domains

    If the option What to do with mail for non-existent users set to Forward to address (also known as catch-all address) in Domains > example.com > Mail Settings, then email messages to mailboxes below are not being delivered to the forwarding email address:

    anonymous@example.com
    mailer-daemon@example.com
    drweb@example.com
    kluser@example.com
    postmaster@example.com
    root@example.com

    Such mailboxes are present in the file /var/spool/postfix/plesk/virtual.db and mapped to be delivered to @localhost.localdomain:

    /usr/sbin/postmap -s /var/spool/postfix/plesk/virtual | grep example.com

    anonymous@example.com anonymous@localhost.localdomain
    mailer-daemon@example.com mailer-daemon@localhost.localdomain
    drweb@example.com drweb@localhost.localdomain
    kluser@example.com kluser@localhost.localdomain
    postmaster@example.com postmaster@localhost.localdomain
    root@example.com root@localhost.localdomain

    Please consider to add an option to disable reserved mailnames like root, postmaster, anonymous for domains in Plesk…

  19. Manage mailing list from address directly in Plesk

    In Plesk Windows, by default, mailing lists are created with the sender address of moderator instead address of mailing list.

    So to fix the issue, and change the address of mailing list to mailing lists address instead moderator address, we need to acess the server via RDP, and change this configuration in MailEnable list settings.

    I suggest to implement this feature directly in Plesk control panel.

  20. 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.
