  1. Trash folder in the server (please)

    When you eliminate some file or folder for mistake a folder of recycling does not exist to be able to restore it, only with the backup but not always it has been done

  2. Plesk SpamAssassin configuration options

    It would be much better if server-wide and per-mailbox options were available in Plesk to add SpamAssassin rules.

    SpamAssassin can be configured by the command line, but this is difficult for many of us.

  4. Support full DNS for CloudFlare ServerShield

    Currently CloudFlare ServerShield is implemented using partial (CNAME) setup. What is the point in a partial setup when you can benefit from full DNS? You get anycast DNS with CloudFlare on full DNS.

  5. Show reason of deferred message in mail queue

    Actually it's possible to show deferred messages headers in : Tools and settings > mail server settings > mail queue

    It would be very useful if it's possible to show the reason why the message is deffered or stuck in the queue (/var/spool/postfix/defer).

  6. Windows Fail2Ban

    The new security option for plesk 12 is Fail2Ban, but it is only for Linux version.

    There is an opensorce for windows.

    http://www.digitalruby.com/securing-...icated-server/

    I suggest to Parallels Team include this.

  7. Webmail - Enable users to edit out of office (auto-response) message in webmail directly

    I'm not sure if any webmail option right now allows the email user to update their out of office / auto response message. I think the email user has to login to Plesk to be able to edit that right now (which is annoying).

    Anyone have any suggestion on this?

  10. Set a senders email address for Plesk notifications

    I am sending mails from an external server, my Plesk Servers do not even have mail setup. Plesk offers the option to send notification mails (like backup errors,...) using an external SMTP server, but all mails get sent using the mail address
    root@servername.domain.tld

    My SMTP server does not have this mail address or even domain setup. I would like to set a custom email address for Plesk to send mails from in order to not have to set up a domain and mail address for every Plesk server.

  11. Backport Fail2Ban IPv6 Support to Plesk Onyx 17.x

    As of now, feature with 178 votes is available in Plesk Onyx 17.9 Preview only: https://plesk.uservoice.com/forums/184549-feature-suggestions/suggestions/17924536-fail2ban-now-supports-ipv6-please-upgrade

    It would be awesome to have this feature available on earlier versions of Plesk Onyx without the necessity to wait until Plesk Onyx 17.9 becomes stable.

  12. Limit amount of backups per customer

    Hey guys,

    I am sure that I speak for hundreds of users when I say that having a limit on backups per customers and or subscriptions should be an important and available option. The option to also limit backups based on the customers subscription storage size will be even better. Otherwise, customers who overuse the backup option will dramatically increase storage space on the server without realization of the administrator. It wouldn't be ideal for an administrator to enter the dumps folder to delete random customer backups. Really hope you guys can resolve this and add this feature as soon…

  13. Possibility to activate DKIM and DomainKey without active local DNS

    Please make possible generating and activating DKIM/DomainKey without having active local DNS server. Consider following situation:

    You have a website that use as sender your domain when sending email and you are want to follow best practices in order to reach inbox, but this domain uses another server for DNS (cloudflare for example, godday, etc.). In this case you need to have DKIM/DomainKey signed mails without the need to activate local DNS server. Also mail management could be set off for that domain, but mails still should be able to be signed.

    I believe that this scenrario is real and…

  14. Add ip manually to fail2ban

    It is not possible to add an ip manually to fail2ban trough Plesk interface. Sometimes you detect an offending ip address which you want to ban from your system, before it is detected by recidive rule.

  15. Add PHP Composer to chrooted

    Please add PHP Composer to chrooted Environments.
    Many Customers Need PHP Composer to install various scripts, cms Systems and libaries.

    A current big Problem is the new typo-neos System - you must use Composer to install at sources correctly

    A other Problem are PHP API's and Libaries like Payment Companies like PAYMILL etc..

  16. Include pgadmin for Postgres management in Plesk

    phpPgAdmin support was dropped starting from Plesk Onyx 17.8
    This means that Plesk does not have any management tool for Postgres databases shipped with it.

    I suggest to include pgadmin in Plesk installation since the latest ve
    rsion of this software (2018-09-06 - pgAdmin 4 v3.3 Released) has just been released, with adequate security. More info about it you can find here:
    https://www.pgadmin.org/

  17. Allow FTPS to use certificates other than the one used to secure Plesk

    Currently only the certificate used to secure plesk is used for all FTPS connections.

    It would be useful to be able to use other certificates for FTPS connections, specifically ones already used for other domains.

    Thank you

  18. Have an option to deliver email addressed to VERP-style email addresses.

    Postfix already has the option, but it doesn't seem to be supported on Plesk.

    I want to use VERP so I can automatically process bounce messages with a script. I send out bulk email with a return-path like bounces+uid-john=example.com@ourdomain.com and I want the bounces to be delivered to bounces@ourdomain.com

    Postfix has the configuration parameter recipientdelimiter. If I set that in /etc/postfix/main.cf, the server accepts the email and passes it to pleskvirtual. But then it is silently discarded instead of being delivered to the bounces mailbox.

    The only way I see with the current set up to deliver…

  19. Complete DMARC Support

    The DMARC support in Plesk Onyx 17.5.3 ist incomplete. If an incoming email is rejected due to a DMARC fail there is no mailer daemon generated to inform the sender of this email.

    Please add this important feature to DMARC support. Otherwise it would not be usable for most customers.

    Currently docker containers are skipped by the backup manager, would be great to include them as well.
