    I agree. Plesk configuration should be fully manageable using CLI tooling.

    @Plesk: Come on! This is a feature that takes a few hours to implement. Everything is already there in the backend system, it only requires frontend implementation.

    SIDN (.NL Registry) is offering incentives for DANE signed domains. Also, internet.nl (a site that tests domains for support for security standards) is showing that DANE isn't active. Especially the last one is generating requests from customers.

    We need this yesterday.

    It would also be wonderful if Plesk can create TLSA automatically based on the certificates installed for a domain. That would be truly wonderfull :)

    Can you clarify on what distribution you have the issue that your changes are overrwitten? We use Plesk on Debian, and we have set the reicpient_delimiter manually (as well as some other settings) and we do not see them get overwritten.

    I dont know why you think that main.cf is getting overwritten, but that is not the case. We make manual modifications to main.cf, and they stay there just fine.

    I would be interested in someone commenting with an example of what he/she wants to acomplish. Now comments are talking about RDNS, which most often cannot be managed by Plesk but needs to be managed by your ISP

    Can someone explain in detail what needs to be done?

    Tozz commented  · 

    You should see this when running Plesk 12 on Linux with Postfix.

    But be aware: Blacklists such as cbl.abuseat.org will list your IP-addresses if they send mail using multiple EHLO/HELO hostnames.

    I can't stress this enough: You are misunderstanding the RBLs. You _dont_ want multiple HELO hostnames from 1 IP.

    @mstefanem: Your rant is untrue. Although I agree that it wasn't properly documented that Plesk has changed the default setting with an update, you can change it quite easily:

    Tools & Settings -> Mail Server Settings -> Outgoing mail mode

    Outgoing mail mode is set to "Send from domain IP addresses and use domain names in SMTP greeting" probably. Change it to "Send from domain IP addresses"

    Tozz commented  · 

    This is already implemented in the latest version. You can choose to use the server name as HELO hostname or the domain's hostname.

    I am in the hosting business for quite some time now, but I have never heard that anti-spam solutions check the SMTP banner for proper hostname. I know the EHLO/HELO header is checked, but not the SMTP greeting banner.

    This would be a stupid check, because multi-domain hosting is very common. It is impossible to adapt the SMTP greeting to all domainnames on a specific server.

    I believe signature or disclaimer is basically the same thing, yes.

    I do not know of any mail server software package that offer this. I believe this should be configured in the e-mail client. All email clients have an option to set a footer/signature.

    I doubt that Exim is the world standard. I only Exim due to DirectAdmin using it. I couldn't find any statistics about SMTP server usage. Please show some proof dat Exim is the most used SMTP server. I highly doubt it.

    In my surrounding I see lots and lots of migrations to Postfix. It's easier to manage, has better tools.

    An error occurred while saving the comment
    Tozz commented  · 

    I dont see why Plesk should consider Exim. Postfix is a great MTA and I dont see what adding Exim to Plesk has to offer.

    Besides that, it also means that any new future related to e-mail has to be implemented in 2 MTA's which means more development time. It is also possibel that a certain feature is not available in one of these MTA's, which means you would have to drop the feature completely.

    IMHO bad idea as it means more work, and I dont see any benefits of adding another MTA.

    String matching is no longer a layer 2 firewall as iptables is, but requires a level 7 firewall which is something completely different.

    This is impossible. Because Joomla returns an HTTP 200 when a login fails, where WordPress (as it should) returns a 401. Fail2Ban checkes for those 401 return codes and bans accordingly.

    Because Joomla always returns 200 (regardless of whether the login succeeded or not) there is no way to check for failed logins.

    You could just create an extra address (for example 'justforsmtp@example.com') and use that as SMTP authenticator account.

    I doubt the outbound anti spam feature in Plesk 12 prevents PHP scripts from opening TCP/25 connections to outside hosts and send spam using a custom mail library. Or for example, a compromised PHP site that is beeing abused by downloading a perl script that sends out mail using an Perl SMTP library.

    I dont see why this should be included in Plesk. You found the solution yourself, which can be easily implemented in something like /etc/rc.local or some othe rfirewall script.

    Why do you need a webinterface for this? Also, this might be handy in your case.. It might not be that handy for someone else.

    @Ben: You dont seem to know what you are talking about. Varnish is something totally different than Spdy. Varnish is a caching reverse proxy server, Spdy is an alternative/addition to the HTTP protocol which makes for slightly faster webpages due to compression and optimalisations.

    As I've written in this thread before, Varnish is _not_ a drop-in addition to Apache. Varnish needs to be configured to work properly with various CMS and shop software like Magento. Thus, the only way to achieve supporting Varnish is if Plesk is aware of the software running on a users website. This is way beyond the scope of Plesk.

    I very much doubt that 'all major' sites use Varnish. I believe the use of Varnish is actually in decline and other solutions such as Redis object caching is now the more obvious choice. Redis is just an example, there are lots of other data stores that can be used to achieve better performance.

    Failover capabilities is not a valid reason. Only varnish does not give you actual failover, you need multiple servesr for that. There are other ways to achieve that using other Parallels' products.

    I think Varnish is becoming less and less usefull, as there are better alternatives. For Magento there is (for example) Redis, which is a better alternative to speed up your website.

    Varnish is also complex to configure and might require different rules per website depending on the content. eg. magento requires its own set of Varnish rules, and WordPress might require yet another ruleset.

    I feel Varnish is currently to complex to setup to achieve this in a matter where it is understandable for end-users.

    I believe this request can be closed, as this is implemented in Plesk 12.

    If you want to do this as admin, you could do this pretty easily with the CLI tools. We regularly set all mailboxes to enable spamfiltering using a cron script.

    Piping e-mail to scripts is something from the past. E-mail is getting more and more "virtualized". In the past e-mail boxes were actually users on the system, which is no longer the case. As of now all mailboxes are virtual and all belong to 1 UID. As piping data means starting a script as that UID, it might have serious security implications.

    If a user would be able to create his own pipe script he could start a shell as the mail server, and read mail from all users. Bad idea.

    There are other ways to fix this, eg, using FAM or maybe IMAP IDLE.
