    a) delivered-to header missing in this Plesk version using qmail as MTA. The Example of Delivered-to header on another server with Plesk 8 is as below :

    In Plesk 8.6

    Return-Path: algefski.grace.g@edumail.vic.gov.au
    Delivered-To: 904-contact@peacechannel.in
    Received: (qmail 32451 invoked by uid 10556); 14 Jan 2010 11:46:41 -0500

    In Plesk 9.3

    Received: (qmail 20831 invoked by uid 10309); 20 Jan 2010 12:20:40 -0500

    After changing to Postfix MTA, a header named as X-Original-to is displayed. This X-Original-to displays the actual mailbox where the email is delivered and not the email id. For e.g.

    Return-Path: susheel@enzymeindia.com
    X-Original-To: admin@enzymeindia.com
    Delivered-To: admin@enzymeindia.com
    Received: from ns2.worldindia.info (unknown [])
    by ns2.worldindia.info (Postfix) with ESMTP id ACA0E328800C
    for chitranjan@enzymeindia.com; Thu, 21 Jan 2010 19:53:15 +0000 (UTC)
    Received: from localhost (unknown [])

    From: susheel@enzymeindia.com
    To: chitranjan@enzymeindia.com
    Subject: da

    Here chitranjan@enzymeindia.com is aliased to admin@enzymeindia.com. If a email is posted externally to chitranjan@enzymeindia.com, the header shows the correct info X-Original-To: chitranjan@enzymeindia.com but if a email is posted internally from horde webmail, the header displays the mailbox where the email is delivered.

    I made a workaround for this but adding the below lines in pico /etc/psa-webmail/horde/imp/conf.php

    $conf['mailer']['params']['host'] = '';
    $conf['mailer']['params']['port'] = '25';

    Here the email routes through the server Ip instead of localhost and headers do get generated.

    Please help to resolve this issue. We are unable to use fetchmail and other Email resources at our local end due to missing headers
