  1. 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.

      • 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.

        • Add Exchange Server 2013 Integration

          I would love to use exchange server 2013 while using plesk panel. Exchange server is by far the most superior email server for windows and would be a great addition to plesk panel.

          I believe that there is also an open API or an easy way to send commands which would make it a lot easier to integrate with.

          • Delete temp. backup files!

            Please clean up temp. backup files from the dumps folder.
            Failed backups (to FTP) remain in the dumps folder filling up the storage space.

            This should not have to happen: please remove these files!

            I am running a workaround cronjob script to delete them every day:

            #!/bin/sh backup_dumps_delete#
            # Delete backup more than 90 days old.
            #
            backupDir="/var/lib/psa/dumps"
            #
            daysToKeep=0

            echo "Checking for files older than $daysToKeep days in $backupDir"
            listOfFiles=`find $backupDir -mtime +$daysToKeep`
            if [ ! -z $listOfFiles ]
            then
            echo "Found [$listOfFiles]"
            else
            echo "None found."
            fi
            for toDelete in $listOfFiles
            do
            echo "Deleting $toDelete"
            rm -rf $toDelete …

            • 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).

                • Renew a subscription

                  Ability to renew a subscription based on the subscription plan's configured subscription expiry date.

                  So if a subscription expires in ten days from now and it's subscription plan is set to expire in one year, I would like to be able to click a Renew button to extend the subscription with one more expiry unit (1 year in this case, 2 years if the subscription plan would have been set to expire every two years).

                  Also show renewal date in the list and sort by renewal date

                      • Introduce Email Signature/Disclaimer management

                        Plesk controlled signature/disclaimer management

                        1)per user
                        2)per URL
                        3)server wide

                        plesk or email in drop down and in the text field
                        ----
                        1. signature at user-level (user@sld.tld) | eg: Regards Mr. Abc
                        2. signature at domain-level (*@sld.tld) | eg: Company xyz, Address
                        3. signature at server-level | eg: "Nessage was tested against spam by xyz-freemail.com"

                        Every "snippet" should be added from level | in this example:
                        "regards

                        Company xyz
                        Address
                        Message was tested against spam by xyz-freemail.com"

                        A client approached me with exactly this request

                          It'd be awesome if we can get support for powerdns support instead of bind9.

                          • Smarthost/External SMTP

                            It would be nice to have an external SMTP (smarthost) ability for a per-domain basis (most mail services have this)

                            We use this for external scanning, data leak prevention and more.

                            Can this be be done?

                            • 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 recipient_delimiter. If I set that in /etc/postfix/main.cf, the server accepts the email and passes it to plesk_virtual. 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 these messages…

                                I want to be able to set the recipient_delimiter. But, currently, any customizations to main.cf get overwritten.

                                  • change password next login

                                    Ask user to change password at next login screen after reset.
                                    We the providers could generate a temp password (customer asks for a reset), and after the first login screen, plesk will force ask from the client to change our temp password.

                                    • Rspamd support

                                      There is relatively new anti-spam tool - Rspamd. I think, it worth to be integrated with Plesk as an alternative to SpamAssassin. It shows better performance as the author says here http://rspamd.com/misc/2016/03/03/rspamd-performance.html

                                      • Add "Move to spam folder" option in Windows (currently available in Linux)

                                        There is an spam filtering option to "Move to spam folder XXXX" on Linux, but not on Windows (Plesk 11+).

                                        Unfortunately, horde doesn't work so well and every time when a message with broken header arrives, horde displays "Invalid Address" and no subject to all inbox messages. The described fix in https://kb.plesk.com/en/121175 doesn't work in this cases, forcing us to find the broken message manually (or scripting something to do the dirty job).

                                        This feature should exists in Windows env as in Linux.

                                        • Create daily md5-hashes of the web-content of a domain, to quickly identify tampering or hacking.

                                          Let Plesk on every night optionally create/compare md5-hashes from all files in the domains storage-space (web,httpdoc,ftp) and update this in a simple list (database), sortable by date of last change, size, number of changes. Indicating "changed files in the last xx days" to have a time-window to drill down.

                                          In addition, accumulate all vhosts together into a seperate "Admin-View", where ALL domains are put together alphabetically.

                                          Add an additional button "snapshot", so one could create a list of all webfiles on request. For example, when an incident has been cleaned, then click "snapshot" and then wait some time to see…
