    Hi there,

    autodiscover is helpful for Thunderbird, Outlook and Apple mail. There is a tool available which helps to achive these features: https://automx.org/en/

    Using this tool, you can autoconfigure mail clients for plesk. If your plesk server (hosting the e-mail service) is installed at [anysubdomain.]mydomain.com, use the following steps to use the tool:

    1) Create the subdomains autodiscover.mydomain.com and autoconfig.mydomain.com and make sure that automx is working for these two subdomains (according to the instructions of automx, e.g., install the required modules etc.). This also includes the following additional instructions for Apache (both HTTP and HTTPS as well as for autodiscover.mydomain.com and autoconfig.mydomain.com (the last two lines are optional):

    ServerAlias autoconfig.*
    <IfModule mod_wsgi.c>
    WSGIScriptAliasMatch \
    (?i)^/.+/(autodiscover|config-v1.1).xml \
    /usr/local/lib/automx/automx_wsgi.py
    <Directory "/usr/local/lib/automx">
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
    </Directory>
    </IfModule>

    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteRule ^$ https://www.mydomain.com/ [R=301,L]

    2) Make sure to install & activate SSL certificates for both subdomains.

    3) Make sure that the DNS server resolves both subdomains.

    4) Edit the default DNS template and add CNAME entries from autoconfig.<domain> to autoconfig.mydomain.com and from autodiscover.<domain> to autodiscover.domain.com.

    5) Apply the DNS template to all existing domains in Plesk.

    6) Set up an approriate automx.conf file, e.g.,:

    [automx]
    provider = <your name>
    domains = *

    [DEFAULT]
    account_type = email
    account_name = %s (via Your Providername)
    account_name_short = %s
    display_name = %s

    [global]
    backend = static
    action = settings

    smtp = yes
    smtp_server = <your-smtp-server-name>
    smtp_port = 587
    smtp_encryption = starttls
    smtp_auth = encrypted
    smtp_auth_identity = %s

    imap = yes
    imap_server = <your-imap-server-name>
    imap_port = 993
    imap_encryption = auto
    imap_auth = encrypted
    imap_auth_identity = %s

    pop = yes
    pop_server = <your-pop-server-name>
    pop_port = 995
    pop_encryption = auto
    pop_auth = encrypted
    pop_auth_identity = %s

    Now requests to autoconfig.customerdomain.com should be redirected to autoconfig.mydomain.com and automx should server the required settings to the clients.

    As a conclusion: with the work of a few hours, this could be enabled for all Plesk customers!

    We have serious doubts this function can really increase server security:
    1) Plesk has built-in protection against brute-force on login – it will lock the login form. So no one can try multiple attempts
    2) Arbitrary login name adds very little guess-complexity to a proper password. If you have concerns for your login brute-forced – add another 5-7 characters into your password and feel safe.

    As changed login name is still very likely to be some sort of vocabulary word or derived from your other account name – this function would only give a false sense of better security. Your security strength is in complex password, not in a complex login name. If you have one good password, you don’t need to treat login as your “second password” – one good password is enough.

    As for concerns that default password requirement is set in “weak”, that fail2ban module is not…
