Attaching the existing SmarterMail services to Plesk.
When there is a SmarterMail service running on the same server with Plesk, it would be great to have an option to create an account in Plesk with the same domain and attach the SmarterMail content.
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.

From my point of view, it is essential nowadays that services are distributed across different systems to reduce the attack surface. This is just because of availability, failover mechanisms, scalability, monitoring of service workloads as well as the specific logs in a SIEM and maintenance work.
It makes no sense to run all services on one and the same server. I would very much like to see the interface between Plesk and other services like SmarterMail, MailEnable, Microsoft Exchange server etc. via API / PSCLI or whatever is necessary and the security requirements are sufficiently taken into account.
Plesk is becoming more and more like a big "egg-laying willow" with integrated mail server, database server, Seafile server, collaboration tools etc. This clearly belongs on different systems distributed if the operator wants this.
Thank is a good feature to add the next update.
The implementation es very simple because only will use API code from SmartMail server remote.
