  1. Add possibility to change default webmail.<domain> subdomain to custom

    At the moment by default any webmail interface is under domain webmail.<domain>

    Some people would like to use custom one. For me personally it's important to have this as server-wide setting (I have basic workaround for this - custom domainWebmail.php), but it isn't perfect (many links to webmail service missing, e.t.c.).

    And that's why we have plesk - user friendly interface.

  3. Default SPAM / VIRUS protection for newly created mailboxes

    I suggest you add a feature in Settings with which we can enable SPAM / VIRUS protection for newly created mailboxes by default.

  4. 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?

  5. 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.

  6. Enable chrooted sftp for more than one user per account

    If I use FTP, I can make as many users as I want. For various reasons, using FTP is not optimal at my workplace. I'd like to be able to let each ftp user I create log in with chrooted sftp.

    I'm able to modify /etc/passwd and /var/www/vhosts/example.org/etc/passwd to make it work, but doing that manually kind of defeats the point of using a tool like Plesk...

    Specifically, I give the ftp user the same home directory, and shell as the initial sftp user has in each passwd file.

    This is a valid request, so we’ll look into it. There is no ETA at the moment, but we would really appreciate you voting for this request so that we can accurately assess its popularity relative to other features.

    The original request contains a manual solution, so, we consider to automate it. Please, add a comment if your case will not be solved with that solution.

  7. 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.

  8. Support for HTTP/2 on APACHE (only) without using nginx as proxy! And Server Push!

    As we have to use apache, i don't like to go for an aditional nginx proxy just to simulate HTTP/2 ;-)

    I think apache is capable to handel HTTP/2 :-D

  11. Add Mailman support to Let's Encrypt

    Please add Mailman support to Let's Encrypt.

    Ideally, one could issue either a certificate directly for lists.domain.com or a wildcard certificate for *.domain.com.

    Furthermore, a secure connection should be enforceable.

    Thanks!

  14. 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.

    If I don't want to forget to set it before leaving.. or i'm sure there's many reasons!

  15. add BROTLI support to nginx and apache

    as brotli seams to be a up to 20% better comression library than gzip and used by many CDN Providers it should be possible to switch on in plesk.

  16. Django/Python Support

    Hi, I have been trying to install a django site onto my server which has plesk and it has taken me weeks and i have paid countless dollars to fix this. I believe you should offer this support or a type of application when it is installed automatically the same as if you click install wordpress you should have the option to click install "DJANGO".

    Many Thanks

  18. 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:
