  1. 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

  2. Resellers service plans: Hiding resources that are not allocated to them

    If you create a reseller plan with e.g. "Data backup and restoration using the server repository = off ", the reseller is still able to make his own service plans with that particular permission enabled. Then, when they assign the subscription to a client it gives a notification that the subscription cannot be synced as it is using resources not allowed by the reseller plan.

    This is frustrating our resellers as many Service Plans have things like "Backup and Anti-Virus Management" ticked by default, resources that we have denied them in the Reseller Plan. They then have to change each…

  4. 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.

  9. 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. :)

    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!

  11. 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?

  14. 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…

  16. Add Firewall rule to block outgoing mail for non-Postfix / non-qmail

    iptables -A OUTPUT -d 127.0.0.1 -p tcp -m tcp --dport 25 -j ACCEPT
    iptables -A OUTPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 25 -m owner --gid-owner postfix -j ACCEPT
    iptables -A OUTPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 25 -m owner --gid-owner mailman -j ACCEPT
    iptables -A OUTPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 25 -m owner --uid-owner root -j ACCEPT
    iptables -A OUTPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 25 -j REJECT --reject-with icmp-port-unreachable

    Would be nice to add this to the Plesk Firewall Module.

    This disables malicious scripts of sending direct mail.

    Other malicious mails sent through localhost (Postfix / qmail) will…

  18. 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.
