  1. Empty an emailbox

    The ability to empty a users emailbox without deleting the account and recreating would be great.

    • 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…

      • Allow customization of /etc/postfix/main.cf

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

          • 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…

                  • Fix File and Folder Permissions for docroot from Plesk UI

                    When switching from Apache to FastCGI the Service Provider needs to change the permissions for the customer from apache:apache to <user>:psacln

                    This can be fixed by having a button in Plesk which does:

                    find $PLESK_DOMAIN_HTTPDOCS -not -user $PLESK_DOMAIN_OWNER -not -name "plesk-stat" -print0 | xargs -0 chown $PLESK_DOMAIN_OWNER:psacln
                    find $PLESK_DOMAIN_HTTPDOCS -type d -not -name "plesk-stat" -print0 | xargs -0 chmod 0755
                    find $PLESK_DOMAIN_HTTPDOCS -type f -not -name "*.pl" -not -name "*.cgi" -not -name "*.sh" -print0 | xargs -0 chmod 0644

                      Suggest : http://plesk.my-domain.com/

                      I think a secundary access will be fine.

                      • Purge/clean mailboxes

                        When mailboxes on a domain get full, it would be very useful to be able to purge them. This is especially relevant when all mail in the mailbox has been downloaded to an email client since the only way to delete the mail from the server is to delete the mailbox and recreate it.

                          SPF information is so far entered through the TXT record. Adding the emerging new SPF record would make sense.

                          • multiple sftp users per domain

                            Allow for multiple SFTP users in domain FTP management. Currently only one SFTP can be created per domain which then forces all additional FTP accounts to only be FTP users.

                            • 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…

                              • Fail2ban setting findtime per Jail

                                In Fail2ban (great idea to include it in plesk!) settings you can set "Time interval for detection of subsequent attacks" (findtime) in general. But it would be interesting this setting per Jail.
                                Why?
                                you could have 2 jail with same filter but different findtime. Example:
                                Jail 1) 5 failures in 600 seconds: 1800 seconds ban
                                Jail 2) 30 failures in 86400 seconds: 604800 seconds ban

                                There are bots that detect if you have some protection fail2ban or similar and it will adapt, login attempt every 300 seconds for example. Jail 1 no detect this attack, but Jail 2 yes.

                                • provide more nginx options

                                  Have the ability to provide more Nginx builds/packages. For example, offer a 'nginx-full'-package with more modules.

                                  For example, I need the Nginx headers more module. Since this need to be built-in at compile time, it isn't possible to add this later on. So that would mean replace the Plesk version of Nginx with the distro-default. (Heck, why does Plesk need it's own Nginx-build, anyway?)

                                  No, passing headers from Apache is not an option, especially when I'm using the Nginx - PHP-FPM setup.

                                    • Add Firewall rule to block outgoing mail for non-Postfix / non-qmail

                                      iptables -A OUTPUT -d 127.0.0.1 -p tcp -m tcp --dport 25 -j ACCEPT

                                      Would be nice to add this to the Plesk Firewall Module.

                                      This disables malicious scripts of sending direct mail.

                                      Other malicious mails sent through localhost (Postfix / qmail) will…

                                      • Support HPKP

                                        I'd like to see HPKP integrated into the SSL certificate management of Plesk. This would allow, in combination with standard Nginx/Apache config, for a strongly recommended and worthwhile security element to be added to hosted sites.

                                        Testing tool

                                        • Temporary FTP accounts (with expire date)

                                          It would be great to have ftp account with an expire date.
                                          A sort of temporary ftp accounts.

                                          This becomes really usefull when you need to share your ftp details temporary with a webdeveloper, or somebody else to maintain of check an website.

                                          I always make a new FTP account for this sort of events, but then forget to delete them. It would be real nice if you could set a expire date that the account automaticly blocks itself after that date is past.
