  1. Introduce Email Signature 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
    Mr. Abc
    Company xyz
    Address
    Message was tested against spam by xyz-freemail.com"

    A client approached me with exactly this request
    what I could get working was the following:

    • 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

      • 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.

              • 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.

                • 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.

                  • subscription wide mailbox size

                    For example(now) a subscription has:
                    - 10 Mailboxes
                    - Maximum mailbox size of 100MB
                    So the maximum disk usage would be 1GB. but there are 2 LIMITATIONS here. first the client can't make more then 10 mailboxes.
                    Second the maximum size of an mailbox is 100MB. You can make them smaller but that is useless.

                    a subscription wide mailbox size can remove these restrictions and so greatly increase the flexibility for the client. For example the subscription wide mailbox size of 1GB and maximum of 5(or unlimited) mailboxes.

                    the client wants:
                    info@domain.tld: 600MB(is logic since an info@domain is much…

                      • 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…

                        • Backup single account

                          It would be great to have a single interface to manage backups of individual accounts (single-domain or single user).
                          I would like to manage a single server backup ftp and let me choose which accounts to backup.

                          Obviously the backup file must be "single" for each account and not a single file for the entire server. If you want to make the restore of a single account, I have to use a single backup file.

                          Currently I have a script that through bash (or cygwin for windows) backs up the single account by bees and upload via ftp on external…

                          • to crete a GUI for the spamfilter.

                            Within the GUI it should be possible to manage the most common tasks of SpamAssassin like the following:

                            - sa-update set up a cronjob for downloading new rules and scores automatically
                            - sa -learn spamfilter training for side/server wide configuration
                            -managing of black and whitelists
                            -adding custom rules and scores

                            A GUI for the spamfilter in conjunction with the planned GUI for the Greylisting will help administrators to reduce the load of incoming spam in a more comfortable way

                                Resellers should be able to configure the "Email Notifications" (http://download1.parallels.com/Plesk/Doc/en-US/online/plesk-administrator-guide/index.htm?fileName=59422.htm) like the admins, so they can have a whitelabled Hosting, independet from other Reselles and the Admin. Otherwise, all Clients, from different Reselles, get the same email.

                                In addition to that, a HTML Support, the Subject and the sender (email from) should be able to edit by each reseller, or by those, who have the permissions to do that.

                                  • Implement DNS Certification Authority Authorization (CAA) resource record

                                    Certification Authority Authorization (CAA), defined in RFC 6844, is a standard that allows domain name owners to control which CAs are allowed to issue certificates for their properties.

                                    ssllabs.com has implemented the detection for this record when checking for the SSL grade they give. To prevent getting graded down and use state of the art techniques for ssl security I would usggest to allow adding those nameserver record.

                                    • Allow the automatic installation of wordpress inside a service plan

                                      Hi,

                                      can be a very interesting feature the possibility to create a service plan that when is used he create automatically a wordpress installation and send data to the customer email.

                                      Very very interesting as WP now is a really standard over internet website creation.

                                      Thanks

                                      • 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.
