Create a domain without hosting

    Is it OK to create a new domain in Plesk but no hosting for that domain in order to be able to setup this domain manually in IIS by adding a separate website entry? I would like to be able to manage email accounts for that domain in Plesk.

    Or is it possible to manage the MailEnable server which comes with Plesk outside the Plesk control panel, to be able to setup everything for this domain without the Plesk, but still keep the Plesk to manage other domains?

    The reason for this is that the Plesk uses a non-standard way of creating hosting for domains in IIS (using virtual directories instead of websites) which causes ASP.NET web applications to have problems with Server.Transfer("/") or with <%@ Register %> directives referencing the root ("/") directory of the web application. :(

    Thanks in advance!

    You should be able to edit the mail enable setting directly, as long as it doesn't overlap with a domain that plesk controls.

    Mailenable control panel itself is accessible from

    c:\program files\swsoft\plesk\mailenable\bin\mailenable.msc
