Add possibility issue Let's Encrypt SSL certificate for mail server when the "A" DNS record for domain is pointing to another server
This feature is required for users with the configuration when on the Plesk only mail server for domain is used.
"A" DNS record for mail.example.com is pointing to Plesk server, when when "A" record for example.com is pointing to another server.
Thank you for your input! We will consider this functionality in upcoming releases if it will be popular. Everyone, please continue voting for this feature if you consider it important.
A much needed feature.
Please add this.
That would be a great implementation..
This is a MUST.
cPanel has it since YEARS.
I absolutely need this opportunity. We have two servers to separate web and mail space. The only-mail-server with over 100 customers.
Not having this function basically makes it impossible to provide email-hosting service to customers.

Very important and absolutely unclear why this doesn't work already.
Actually you cannot provide just email hosting for someone that needs his own subdomain to be used.
Also you have problems if the domain is configured to use some CDN like CloudFlare.

The latest version of Plesk seems to half-implement this feature. For example, dovecot contains config files for the "mail" subdomain of each subscription, but the certificates those configs use have not been issued for those subdomains.
Please fully implement this feature asap. Thanks...
Good idea even if you can create a subdomain mail.domain.xx and secure that as a workaround. Then use that certificate in mail settings on the main domain.
I think this is very important

No suggestion, but a critical, urgent, overdue feature request, as described in many "suggestions" since years:
with Let´s Encrypt certificate without having to set the DNS A Record for
to the mailserver IP.
And withouth having WAF disabled (SSL It 1.20 is being blocked bei Comodo (free) and Atomic (free) rules, other not tested yet).
