    6º Plesk should use phpMyAdmin in a current version and not a deprecated and 6 month old version. (Plesk 8.0 from 2006-03-31 had a version of phpMyAdmin from 2005-10-xx.

    7º Plesk should use SpamAssassin 3.1.1 (released at 2006-03-11 = was the current release at 2006-03-31) and not the old version SpamAssassin 3.0.4.

    8º Plesk should change from domain centric to customer centric view.

    9º Plesk should support other MTA like Postfix. qmail is outdated, the last update was 1998! Read more about the open bugs in qmail

    10º Plesk should change their subdomain logic. Only one directory for webdocuments, no more different subdirectories for subdomains.

    11º Plesk should not disable /var/log/messages!

    12º Plesk shold behave less windows like and more like a server admin tool. Plesk is a lot like windows.

    From 1 - 6, I agree completely.

    7 - you can upgrade on your own. But true, nonetheless.

    8 - I strongly disagree. It really depends on how you run things in your company

    9 - support others as a choice, perhaps. Drop Qmail? Never.

    10 - from the admin standpoint, it should be like it is now.

    12 - don't know really what you mean, but we'll never administrate a server trough Plesk. Administrate customers hosting packages - yes, server - never.

    13º Please, change the serial format for compability with RFC.

    I think about the mail server that the best solution is give the option or choice in the installation process where each person can decide which install on your system for example, qmail, postfix, exim, etc...

    8) It's depends on each company.

    Currently, qmail is set to use the IP resolving to the MX for the domain the outgoing mail is using. Thus, if you set, in templates on initial setup, to use the main server IP as the MX A-record, then the outgoing IP will always be the same. However, there are patches available to change this setting manually.

    Granted, this "manual" change wouldn't give you the ability to do this through the control panel, which means more work, but it would give you the ability to change this w/o having to change 1, 2, 20, or 300 domains DNS records over....

    Just thought I'd give you a bit of assistance on that one, in case you weren't aware..

    OK here are my feature requests. The know-how should be there because Confixx was able to handle those ;-)

    14 New option for domain listing under domains or customer -> show/hide domain aliases (like for show/hide email alias). So you have control over all domains registered yet.

    15 Option to define special settings for vhost.conf like symbolic links or kind like this - as we could in confixx. It's horrible to do it in the shell

    16 Domain alias should be able to point to a special subfolder of an user account like for subdomains

    regards
    Oliver

    Skeletons

    º17 Domain Templates should have there own area to upload a skeleton file. Then you would be able to creat a domain template that not only set up storage sizes and things like that but could also install specific software like a specific content management system ( out of you choice of 3 for your customers), or a project manager and so on. This could also be done by allowing the domain creator to select a skeleton file during domain creation much like the domain template is selected. The admin must have the ability to make it so that the client does not have this ability if they desire. This must be done because many of us sell our expertise to install and custom configure many free web products.

    18º Please, improve webmail interfase (horde), in this forum I found an excellent option for this, but is important the implementation of the new interfase for webmail.

    going to 30...

    19) dns template for domain aliases
    just like for main domain dns entries

    20) Slave domain hosting type
    This type comes next to physical and forwarding...
    When SLAVE is selected, it acts as secondary dns server for that domain and as secondary mail server that holds emails when primary domain is down.
    Those 2 options could be independed selectable...

    21) Export settings
    Each page should have this option...
    Moving to a new server would be loads simpler if you could just upload a settings file

    21) Domain owner as part of the domain template

    22) Spamassassin defaults for new mailboxes
    When new mailboxes are created the spamassassin settings should be defaulted to whart is defined on the server level spamassassin settings.
    Hits now default to 7 while I have 5 at server level... I found though in the database where to change this...

    23) Serverwide Anti-Virus
    Option to allow all mailboxes to be automatically be protected (people tend to forget to enable this)

    24) Backups of FTP server listed
    if FTP defined

    25) Update mechanisme for application vault
    possibility to upgrade the applications to the latest version or a version of your choice

    26) Commented config files
    add comments like: "Do not add/change anything underneath this line as it gets overwritten by PLESK"

    27) Defaults for SOA preferences
    definable by admin

    28) Disable/Enable Server features
    The admin could be able to define:
    on this server we don't use: mailing lists, web users, backup, postgre, etc.
    All actions related to the features are disabled and all related services/processes are shut down

    29) backup firewall rules
    allow backup/restore of firewall rules

    *30) Ability to see domain aliasses defined for a domain. Similar feature that we have now to reveal e-mail aliasses. At the moment when you have 100s of domains and 100s of aliasses you can get lost.

    Re: Skeletons

    Also, ability to "EDIT" skeleton templates/files would be very nice. Just click on it and edit.

    OYBTW, I'll put in another plug for AWSTATS!!!

    32. Extremely lightweight skin.

    Plesk is a bit slow on a 56k dialup line, and I'd expect is equally bad on things like cellular modems.

    A low-graphics skin might also make it friendlier to access on devices with limited display capabilities (mobile phone web browsers, lynx users, etc.)

    33. Ability to AUTOMATICALLY turn on anti-virus on every mailbox created. My customers are suffering because not everyone remembers to turn on the anti-virus. This is starting to cost me money. Surely this has to be a simple setting?

    Bulk load of enail addresses

    When migrating an existing mail server it was a real pain in the wrist to do all that clicking to create each mailname by hand. On the previous system we used the I setup 60 mailboxes in 5 min by loading a single csv file.

    Some instructions on testing the mailserver before going live would be useful too.

    What is the hack for manually changing the outbound IP for qmail? I have put in a support ticket to my service provider, but they seem rather clueless.

    postfix!

    34. postfix-support
    35. postfix-support
    36. postfix-support
    37. postfix-support
    38. postfix-support

    plesk is definitly a spam-friendly product because there's no out of the box solution to avoid spam in a serious manner like possible with postfix.
