  1. Make subdomain email addresses possible without new subscription

    It's incredibly annoying that you have to setup a subscription solely for each subdomain that you want to create email addresses for. Please fix this.

    • Use "Let's encrypt" to secure IMAP/POP/SMTP connections

      Use "Let's encrypt" to secure IMAP/POP/SMTP connections to avoid "non valid certificate" messages with self signed certs.

        UPD: “Fraud” means an attempt to boost votes from fake accounts. 2 of every 3 votes here were fake accounts. That will later be cleaned up and we will work on changing authentication to prevent this issue repeated.

        We don’t question validity of this request, but we question how many people would benefit from it. Please continue sharing your stories in comments, it is very helpful

      • Delete mail after forwarding

        I would like to use an E-Mail address as an outgoing E-Mail address with no postbox behind it. All E-Mails should be forwarded to another E-Mail address.
        Currently you can set up forwarding but if you check "Use postbox" than the mails will be kept on the server although they have been forwarded. If you uncheck it, it is impossible to send emails from that address.

        So please add at least an option to delete mails after forwarding them.

            • 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.

                • 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.

                  • 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.

                        Thank you for your input!

                        Could you please explain your request in more detail? What DNS server software or Hosting Panel will be used as a source for export/import? What format do you want to use as an input for such tool (BIND? CSV, SQL, other)? What format do you want to get as an output from such tool?

                        As a workaround, you can try to automate this with CLI. Documentation about DNS CLI in Plesk: https://docs.plesk.com/en-US/onyx/cli-linux/using-command-line-utilities/dns-dns-zones-on-domains.37771/

                        • Create daily md5-hashes of the web-content of a domain, to quickly identify tampering or hacking.

                          Let Plesk on every night optionally create/compare md5-hashes from all files in the domains storage-space (web,httpdoc,ftp) and update this in a simple list (database), sortable by date of last change, size, number of changes. Indicating "changed files in the last xx days" to have a time-window to drill down.

                          In addition, accumulate all vhosts together into a seperate "Admin-View", where ALL domains are put together alphabetically.

                          Add an additional button "snapshot", so one could create a list of all webfiles on request. For example, when an incident has been cleaned, then click "snapshot" and then wait some time to see…

                                    Everyone, thank you for the feedback, it’s been quite enlightening. We’d like to understand the root cause behind your requests to change the WP installation URL and we’d appreciate if you could answer our questions below:

                                    1. Do you need this to support some sort of staging scenario, where you’re synchronizing changes between “staging” and “production” instances?

                                    2. Do you develop WP websites in a temporary folder not easily accessible from outside and then, as soon as you consider the website to be done, you move it to the “final” (production) folder?

                                    3. Is there a scenario different from #1 and #2 above that requires moving WP to a different directory after the installation, and if so, could you describe the business scenario?

                                    Since Uservoice is not particularly well-suited to have these discussions, we suggest all interested parties to visit the following thread on our forum and participate in the…

                                    • Custom Bookmarks on homesite / start-screen

                                      It would be a good idea to put the bookmarks back in the panel. In some earlier versions of plesk ( 9 or ten i think) we could generate a bookmark for every website of the plesk-system (i.e. a special hosting or a database) wich enable a solution for 1click administration of our most used actions in plesk.

                                      thanks for bring it back again!
