Mailpile support (secure mail server option)
In light of the Snowden fallout, I hope that Plesk will add support for Mailpile (http://www.mailpile.is) or something similar for secure e-mail.
Thank you for your input!
Mailpile is meant to be a local e-mail client which is installed to the personal computer (https://www.mailpile.is/faq/#wha) and secure your mail by fetching it from server, deleting from server and securely storing on local disk. It is not considered as webmail client which is installed on the server. It works with mail server over standard protocols (SMTP, POP3, IMAP) which are supported by Plesk, so you may install use it without any limitations.
Though, as it has the web interface and written on Python, it may be installed to a web server, but it’s not recommended for security and privacy reasons.
Unfortunately, we have no plans to integrate it with Plesk panel.
Mailpile is now on version 1.0rc3. It´s interesting because although it is just a webmail client like roundcube it encrypts all information on disk, the mail messages along with subjects are encrypted, so what we have to do for complete privacy is choose the option to delete the mail on server so that the messages only exist in the encrypted form after being fetched my Mailpipe. I have tried to install it on debian 9 and ubuntu and it is functional, however I think is not fully compatible with centos. It is a good free open source alternative to services like protonmail or tutanota!
Intresting project, not sure how good it would be for plesk. Maybe down the road. Although i think the project goal is to make PGP really easy but isnt this just an email client the same as horde etc ?
I run a server! Can I can use Mailpile to give my users webmail access?
Q/ Note that Mailpile is primarily written as a personal application, it is not designed for large multi-user installations.
A/ That said, this should become possible for small groups quite soon after our 1.0 release. Mostly we will need to document the recommended setup procedure.

What does it add? Seems like a webmail client to me. You can provide any webmail client over HTTPS. Whether IMAP or SMTP support SSL/TLS is not something the webclient handles.
I don't really see what it would add thus (the interface seems to beat atmail tho' - but that's personel preference).
Mailpile looks like very much "development in progress". Are there any other options?
