  1. Support all RFC3696 local part characters

    Allow email address, local part to have characters such as $ as per RFC3696 which allows ! # $ % & ‘ * + – / = ? ^ _ ` . { | } ~

    My problem is that I have moved my hosting package from eXtend to Plesk, and suddenly I have a bunch of email accounts I cannot re-create.

  2. Manage mailing list from address directly in Plesk

    In Plesk Windows, by default, mailing lists are created with the sender address of moderator instead address of mailing list.

    So to fix the issue, and change the address of mailing list to mailing lists address instead moderator address, we need to acess the server via RDP, and change this configuration in MailEnable list settings.

    I suggest to implement this feature directly in Plesk control panel.

  3. Implement DNS Whitelists

    Plesk does not currently support DNS Whitelists like it does RBLs, such as the list at dnswl.org. There needs to be a way to add this from the Plesk UI.
    The Postfix main.cf config directive is permitdnswlclient.
    Whenever a Plesk upgrade happens, the setting, if added is removed and needs to be added back manually.

  4. Show currently/recently mail sending scripts

    Use case: One of our customer has uploaded files to his ftp server in a public internet cafe and his password was stolen. Afterwards there was a mass spam mail sending script on his webserver. Our server has been landed in black lists. It was very difficult to find and correct it.

  5. Blacklist of recipient target addresses in the spamfilter (useful for wildcard mailboxes)

    Hello,
    I miss the functionality of managing a blacklist of target email addresses in case you have a catchall email domain.
    In most cases, the originator address of spam emails changes every time, but the target address is frequently used.
    So with this functionality, I could drop out invalid recipient addresses, without giving up the setup to use catchall all emails <everything>@your-domain.
    This is useful to register webshops or community everytime using a separate target email address to distinguish incoming email if they are valid or not.

  6. Implement push notifications to iOS devices from mail server

    Implement push notifications to iOS devices from mail server.

    Here are details of what I mean: using a patched version of Dovecot and a small Perl script, it's possible to get native Apple push notifications for new mail using the stock iOS mail client. This is accomplished by mimicking Apple's XAPPLEPUSHSERVICE IMAP extension for Dovecot used in macOS Server, whose source code is published on the Apple Open Source website. See more details here: http://bit.ly/2H8NERJ

  9. Add a feature that allows the configuration of Postfix relay to Exchange for a specific domain

    Add a feature that allows the configuration of Postfix relay to Exchange for a specific domain.

  10. Allow email accounts to change their own Webmail/SMTP/POP3 passwords without creating a Plesk user

    We have lots of staff members who need an email address, but should not have access to Plesk in any way at all. Currently, the only way for them to choose a password, is to choose one and tell the Plesk Administrator what that password is, and have the Plesk Administrator configure their password for them. This is extremely unsecure. Something as simple as a 'send password reset link' button in the Email account configuration would work. This button would send an email to that account, and allow the email user to click on the link to change their Webmail/SMTP/POP3…

    By default Plesk offer webmail service for each email account. Email user can easily change his password in webmail settings.

    But anyway, thank you for your input! We will consider this functionality in case that Plesk no offer webmail in upcoming releases, if it will be popular.
    Everyone, please continue voting for this feature if you consider it important.

  12. Allow disabling SPF checks for a specific domains

    Right now spf hook checks incoming mail for all domains if it is enabled in Tools & Settings > Mail Server Settings.
    There is no simple way to disable it for some domains/subscriptions that may not need it present.

  14. Add an option to disable reserved mailnames like root, postmaster, anonymous for domains

    If the option What to do with mail for non-existent users set to Forward to address (also known as catch-all address) in Domains > example.com > Mail Settings, then email messages to mailboxes below are not being delivered to the forwarding email address:

    anonymous@example.com
    mailer-daemon@example.com
    drweb@example.com
    kluser@example.com
    postmaster@example.com
    root@example.com

    Such mailboxes are present in the file /var/spool/postfix/plesk/virtual.db and mapped to be delivered to @localhost.localdomain:

    /usr/sbin/postmap -s /var/spool/postfix/plesk/virtual | grep example.com

    anonymous@example.com anonymous@localhost.localdomain
    mailer-daemon@example.com mailer-daemon@localhost.localdomain
    drweb@example.com drweb@localhost.localdomain
    kluser@example.com kluser@localhost.localdomain
    postmaster@example.com postmaster@localhost.localdomain
    root@example.com root@localhost.localdomain

    Please consider to add an option to disable reserved mailnames like root, postmaster, anonymous for domains in Plesk…

  15. add procmail support

    procmail is a very flexible mail filter and processing tool and it is a shame that it is not integrated within plesk.
    I need it to do some mail autoprocessing depending on subject and sender.
    I am surprised that even with plesk 17 it is not already available.

  16. sort, archive or filter (not spam) email on server directly when received

    I'm using different (imap) clients on different devices to read emails. Many of them can be sorted / filtered / archived in specific subfolders by subject, sender or similar.
    Most - but not all - clients can be configured to do so - but this means also to reconfigure several clients on rule changes.

    So i'd like to suggest the possibility to handle emails on receiving on the server.
    E.g:
    - if sender ends with "domain.foo" or subject contains "project bar" then move to folder bar and mark as read
    - if sender is "foo@domain.bar" forward to "…

  17. Ignore POP3/IMAP failed authentication attempts in traffic statistics on Plesk for Windows

    Mail authentication brute force attacks generate additional traffic.
    It is counted as a part of POP3/IMAP traffic statistics in Plesk for Windows.
    Please add functionality to recognize and ignore such normal traffic so that it does not forge POP3/IMAP statistics.

  19. Knowing the mailbox name that exceeds the "outgoing email spam"

    It will be better if plesk Outgoing Mail Control shows email instead of domain name.
