  1. ActiveSync support on Roundcube and Horde (Push)

    ActiveSync is a necessary tool for most businesses today as it allows them to have everything in one place and stream it automatically to every device they use. Users with mobile phones and tablets can easily sync their contacts, calendars, notes and emails via activesync and users with outlook and other mail clients can sync contacts, mail and perhaps notes.

  2. DynDNS-Service Module

    Add a new Domain/Subdomain-Type "DynDNS", which redirects to a dynamic IP-Address like dyndns.org and similar sites including an api to sync the current ip address through url call.

  3. Change admin username

    It should be possible for the admin user to change his user login name. The name "admin" is not very secure, because it's easiert to hack via brute force. The hackers know, the name is "admin". If the user would be able to change his login name, it would increase the security of Plesk Panel.

    We have serious doubts this function can really increase server security:
    1) Plesk has built-in protection against brute-force on login – it will lock the login form. So no one can try multiple attempts
    2) Arbitrary login name adds very little guess-complexity to a proper password. If you have concerns for your login brute-forced – add another 5-7 characters into your password and feel safe.

    As changed login name is still very likely to be some sort of vocabulary word or derived from your other account name – this function would only give a false sense of better security. Your security strength is in complex password, not in a complex login name. If you have one good password, you don’t need to treat login as your “second password” – one good password is enough.

    As for concerns that default password requirement is set in “weak”, that fail2ban module is not…

  4. that you adapt the main domain name of an IP as the myhostname for POSTFIX or QMAIL.

    Most of RBLS are checking the SMTP Banner and currently only the first domain name is being used. To reduce scamming or to prevent being blacklisted you should apply myhostname with the according domain name.

  5. Add two score thresholds to spamassassin

    If the spam score is above the first threshhold, flag the message as spam or deliver it to Spam folder;

    Reject it immediately (preferably during the SMTP session) or just discard if the score is above the second, higher threshold.

    This way the customer would have more control over the anti-spam system, allowing much less true spam mail to enter the mailbox.

  6. Add support for more DBs

    When I first saw the option of create DBs, I thought it was something like I'm suggesting. MongoDB, MariaDB, CouchDB, etc, etc. This will be super cool. :)

  7. provide a way to see why a subscription is locked

    Many times I find that some subscriptions won't sync because they are locked. I'd really like to know why they are locked. So far, I've been able to unlock & sync with no noticeable changes. But I'm left wondering what caused the lock in the first place. And I'm afraid that I'll realize later something no longer works as expected.

  9. allow for custom firewall rules

    currently you can do it by IP/Port, but would like to be able to add firewall rules for things like string matching. A GUI would be ideal too.

  10. Multiple backup rules or more options

    At this moment, you can set only 1 rule to make backups (daily, weekly, or monthly). My idea is to make multiple backup rules (ex. which daily backups should be deleted) or simply make more backup options.

    Ex:
    I want to make daily backup and delete every older than 2 days, except one day of the week and one day of the month.

    ex interface:
    Make [daily/weekly/monthly] backup and keep only:
    [n] daily backups (enabled only for daily backups)
    [n] weekly backups (enabled for daily and weekly backups)
    [n] monthly backups (enabled for daily, weekly and monthly backups)

    So, if…

    Hi all, Thanks for your input, really appreciate this! As you know, in Plesk Onyx 17.8 we made a significant improvement that allows you to use several cloud storages or even SFTP for remote backups. In Plesk Onyx 17.9 we will continue to improve Plesk Backup Manager in general and Flexible Backup Scheduler Manager in particular.

    Based on the initial description and comments I can highlight 3 scenarios in the scope of this request:

    #1. Keep Daily & Weekly & Monthly backups at the same time: (Example: 2 weeks of daily backups + weekly backups by each Monday)

    #2. Backup to different storages (like daily to FTP and monthly to Google Drive)

    #3. Multiple Storages of the same type (like 2 different FTP servers)

    ID in our Issue Tracker: PPM-1701
    -DL

  11. Can set "Preferred domain" setting in the "Service Plans"

    In the "Service Plans" part, there is no option for setting the "Preferred domain" (seoRedirectDirection).
    it is very inconvenience, because we need to set the "Preferred domain" (seoRedirectDirection) again and again after created the site.
    It is possible to add this setting in the "Service Plans" part?

  14. Enable Nginx GeoIP module

    Some of security configuration requires GeoIP detection. It also useful for tracing and should be easy as adding '--with-http-geoip-module' option to configure command for the package.

  15. 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).

  16. Add Keyfile Option to Migration Manager

    In Migration Manager we need to provide a root user and password so that Plesk can access the source server. But providers like Amazon do not give you a root password by default. It would be great to have an option to upload the key file for the migration. Plesk could save it for future sessions, or offer to delete it after the migration.

    Current scope for Plesk Onyx is to enable an ability to serve all http(s) requests by Nginx only.

    Note: apache will still be installed. Switching of apache to optional component is subject for the next release.

    Update:

    The ability to turn off Apache and have content served by nginx only on a per-website basis is now available in the latest Plesk Onyx 17.0.14 preview. We encourage you to check the implementation and let us know what you think. Please visit the following forum thread to learn how to access the preview: https://talk.plesk.com/threads/plesk-onyx-preview-and-feedback.337172

    How to try this feature:

    Go to any website, click Apache & nginx Settings and deselect the “Proxy mode” checkbox under nginx settings. The feature is also available in Service Plans.

    We would appreciate hearing your feedback on implementation of this functionality. Thanks in advance!

  19. Spam configuration per subscription or domain

    Now you have two opportunities to set the spamfilter - server-wide or individual. It would be very handy if the admin or the customer could set the spamfilter for the whole subscription or/and for the whole domain.
