Customizable Plesk notification email address
Plesk has the ability to send notifications. However, with the latest version (v18.0.32) these are sent to my "External email address" of the admin user. But since I as admin user enter my Apple iCloud email "email@example.com" there, it is used as both sender and recipient and all notification emails end up in the spam folder of my iCloud mail.
It would be really great if you could separate the administrator email from the notification email address and change it specifically so that email notifications are sent from "Plesk@domain.tld" to the external administrator email "firstname.lastname@example.org", for example.
For this the setting "Plesk default notification email address" under "Tools & Settings -> Notifications" or "Tools & Settings -> Server settings" would be appropriate.
As https://plesk.uservoice.com/forums/184549-feature-suggestions/suggestions/16956373-set-a-senders-email-address-for-plesk-notification was resolved and the sender address of notifications is now customizable we are wondering whether the issue described in this feature request cannot also be considered solved. The issue here was described as sender and recipient being the same address so that notifications are evaluated as "spam" at the recipient's mailbox. However, now that the sender address can be customized, this could easily be circumvented.
Further, the recipient address of notifications can be freely set in the notifications page.
Please comment if and why this feature request is still actual.

There is already a similar Feature Request with even ~140 upvotes ... +20 here ... = 160 upvotes ... hope they implement this in a timely maner ... as it would be badly needed by us ...

SPF fails for all of the notifications because Plesk is spoofing the "From:" email address. The From: address needs to be specified separately from the To: address, so the From: may be set to something that would pass SPF checks (e.g. pleskadmin@hostname).

This functionality would be really good, because I have the same problem. I have therefore disabled the notifications so far.
