Better Integration w/ MailEnable

Discussion in 'Plesk for Windows - 8.x and Older' started by Damin, May 9, 2004.

    The requirement by Plesk to have a "Catch to" address defined without a "none" option is a serious problem. It means that every single piece of malformed SPAM garbage will be accepted, spooled and delievered somewhere. This means that Spammers that check for valid accounts by brute force attacks (trying one account name at a time) will find a bonanza as every address will return a positive result, meaning that even MORE **** will be targeted towards those servers in the future. Multiply that by several hundred domains on a Plesk server and you have a major problem.

    This becomes even worse when you factor in the fact that Plesk doesn't support Mailbox Quotas.

    However, MailEnable does all these things and more. I would HIGHLY suggest that even before 7.0 is release that 6.5 have a patch released that adds the following features:

    1. Mailbox Quota Size
    2. Ability to define the Postmaster and Abuse addresses
    3. Ability to select a "None" option for the "Catch To" address that gives a 550 User Unknown error for unknown users.

    These would be trivial to add.

    I totally agree with Damin.

    We used Plesk on Linux, which is version 7.0. It has wonderful features. Now, we are looking for the Plesk Windows version 7.0 really soon.

    But before that, as Damin suggested, I request Plesk team to release a patch.

    Also, the webmail, that came along with Plesk 6.5 for Windows lacks basic features such as "Sent Items" folder.

    Ours is a big company with so many clients, each having several email users. We are really facing a lot of problems with this version of Plesk.

    Hope the Plesk team will come out with version 7.0 really soon with all features that are in Plesk 7.0 for Linux.
