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.
We’re planning to support ActiveSync in the upcoming Premium Mail extension powered by Kolab. CardDAV and CalDAV will also be supported. We don’t have a specific ETA yet, but we expect it to be available later this year.
Plesk should be a system where I can use all features out of the box. The concept of making every new addition a paid add-on is discouraging!
******** pricing. Very expensive

Mail in a Box is a very good suggestion, thanks! At least for me, this could be a very good overall alternative to PLESK. The Premium Mail extension is not an option as it is far too expensive.
Aaron McHale commented
Mail in a Box isn't better, it's essentially the same but in a VM, however since it doesn't directly integrate into Plesk and lacks many of the features Plesk provides I'd say this is a better solution for most people.
On another note any new info as to when the extension will support "premium mailboxes" side by side with "basic mailboxes" so we can upsell customers to them, I was previously told this would be included in an update but haven't heard anything recently.
Too Expensive commented
Way better free open source alternative.
Thank you commented
This is AWESOME!
Teo Galindo commented
this feature would be amazing!!!
It's too expensive! Will there be a free alternative (e.g. Sogo)?

By default, only Horde is installed on Plesk for Windows. Additionally, Plesk for Windows supports the following webmail clients (https://docs.plesk.com/en-US/onyx/administrator-guide/mail/webmail-software.66411/):
- MailEnable Web Client
- SmarterMail Web Client
- IceWarp (Merak) Mail Server Web Client
- Atmail Open
MailEnable already has support ActiveSync, CalDAV and CardDAV - https://www.mailenable.com/mobile-contacts-calendar-tasks.asp
SmarterMail already has support ActiveSync, CalDAV and CardDAV - http://help.smartertools.com/SmarterMail/v14/Topics/General/EditionComparison.aspx
Is it also for plesk windows server? Need roundcube with caldav and carddav there
Are you planning to add CardDAV and CalDAV support too? If you're just implementing active sync it will be for example a problem on iPhone because the exchange layout shows also Calendars, Contacts and Todos. So in conclusion I would be really happy if there will be a plesk native CardDAV and CalDAV Server too. :)

Would you please share with us about estimated time of arrival?
Estimated time of arrival?
Could you add a push service to the mail service so that emails get automatically forwarded to mobile devices in the same moment, they arrive at the server?

A short note about planned in which quarter or year would be nice.

ETA on this?
I am running Horde /ActiveSync on my Plesk 12.5 VPS but to configure it manually it takes a while to get it in a working condition using this tips:
Notes are not synced by Outlook.
Would be nice to get this feature in ONYX out of the box. This makes email/contacs/calandar sync extremely easy.
Please make this optional only, not everyone needs PUSH.
