    This is definitely needed with the amount of Office 365 records that have to be entered. The other options would be the ability to import and export records.

    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…

    Increasing server security is not the only reason to allow an alternate administrative username. How about auditing. If you have multiple people using a system you have multiple usernames to keep track of them.We are assuming there is always one administrator?

    Not only should this be an option, new admins should be prompted to use an alternate admin username. This will help in security.

    Several 3rd party vendors offer email filtering and email encryption. To use these services you have to setup the mail server to send through a 3rd party smarthost. This would be a nice feature. I see that there is a comment about manually doing this through Postfix. What about those people using Qmail and those whose use Plesk that do not have shell access.

    I am currently doing this command line. It would be nice if you could do this through the panel.
