    Give following commands:

    service psa stopall
    service psa startall

    service qmail start


    And then try, it should work.

    If you still have problem let me know your chat ID so that we could solve it.

    Hello,


    The problem you are getting is due to the Qmail service as it is not up and while creating the Domain plesk do entries for the domain in mail manager.Now if your Qmail is up you can add the domain.

    Check if there is any ackgroud process for qmail

    give command as follows:

    ps -auxf |grep qmail

    or straight away give following command.

    killall -9 qmail

    keep giving this command till you get the message.

    No Such process to kill

    And then again start the qmail by

    service qmail start

    I had the same problem. The solution:

    1. As root go into the install folder of plesk.
    2. Find the psa-qmail-xx.rpm file. Its usually in the base folder
    3. Execute rpm -ivh psa-qmail-xxx.rpm --force to reinstall the qmail package from scratch.

    Obviously, the xxx in the filename stands for the version of the package.

    Good luck!

    The issue is that your hostname and domainname are not set properly.

    Set your hostname and domainname and then do as vasillalov said.
