Plesk 12.x / Linux :: Change Domain Name For Incoming / Outgoing Mail Server
Mar 11, 2015
I wonder if there is any chance to change the domain that is being shown as the incoming/outgoing mail server to users of the Plesk Panel, when clicking on the "Info"-Icon near an e-mail-account in the mail list (see screenshot).
We only have a SSL certificate for one domain and want our customers to use this domain in their mail client settings, so that the client trusts the domain.
As the admin user, change the setting for a particular email account called "The maximum number of outgoing email messages" to a value beyond the default. For example if the default is 35, set it to 75. This is common -- often we have customers who send larger quantities of messages than the average user.
Login as a reseller with access to manage the email account and attempt to change any *other* value. For example, you could completely ignore the outgoing mail messages value and change just the Auto-Reply value
Plesk refuses to allow the change and kicks me back to the first tab with the following error:
The value must be in the range 0..35. Only the Plesk administrator can adjust this setting.Click to expand...
I upgraded from 11 to 12 (centOS) and set outgoing mail limits for mailboxes, domains and subscriptions, as per the documentation at URL....However, it doesn't appear the limits are limiting outgoing mail. As I can still send far more mail than the current limit using a PHP script.
#### maillog (partial & timestamp + servername removed for brevity) #### py_limit_out: ERROR 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'lower' plesk sendmail: Error during 'limit-out' handler plesk sendmail: handlers_stderr: SKIP plesk sendmail: SKIP during call 'check-quota' handler
how to configure outgoing mail limits? I've also read through the sendmail documentation but couldn't find anything.
I've searched, since about update 37 the outgoing mail control has stopped working for all of my domains. I get a hacker sendmail script uploaded sometimes and it used to catch it. Now it allows them to send and isn't detected them, maxing out my relays.
In the documentation for Plesk 12 there is no information on what is happening if the limit for outgoing mail is reached.
If there is a limit of 50 mails per hour on a mail account and someone is trying to send 60 mails in one hour, what does happen with these 10 mails over limit?
1. Are there send 50 mails and the rest of 10 mails are deleted and will never be sent? 2. Or are these 10 mails sent later? 3. Can there be sent more mails in the next hour or is the mail account now blocked for sending mails?
I upgraded Plesk to 12.0.18 on centos5.8 just because of new feature, Outgoing Mail Limit. There was no problem until I had to increase one of my client's domain limit. I set its Mail Box, Domain & subscription limit to "unlimited", but user get limit exceeded warning again. I search this problem on internet, and the only related article was [URL] .... but I didn't got meaning of "server wide limits".
Since the update I have a problem with my Firewall. I need to set "Allow all incoming connections" under "Server => Firewall" in order to connect over FTP with TLS (explicit). This was working before the update without allowing all incoming connections. How to fix this in the Plesk panel?
Outgoing mail control functions properly for domains, but it does not count or limit subdomains.
For example, if you have a subdomain like: sub.domain.tld
And an email account on that subdomain, like: firstname.lastname@example.org
Then outgoing mail limits are not applied to that subscription/domain/mail account. You are able to send more emails than the limit.
Also, if you go to: -> Tools and Settings -> Outgoing mail control
And try to see statistics for that subscription/domain/mail account, it shows that there are not sent emails, even if you have sent emails. Of course I checked it many hours after sending, or even the next days.
Is it possible to see what e-mails are blocked/prohibited by Plesk Outgoing mail control? Currently i've set a limit of 20 mails on each mailbox. Yesterday I received an e-mail that there were messages blocked. For me personally it would be good to see what the receivers email adresses are and optionally what the content of the e-mail was. This way I can find out if it was really spam or not.
If the e-mails weren't spam, is there a possibility to release and send them?
I just configured the limit for outgoing mail. It works well, but I have still some questions.
Normally the server sends bounce messages in HTML and in german. They look nice and what is much more important, the users who do not speak english are informed what is going on.
The message that is send, when the limit for outgoing mail is exceeded uses a different template. It is delivered in plain text and after explaining in german that the mail could not be send, it states the reason in english.
Is there any way to edit this bounce message, so that a translation could be added?
I had some users complaining that the server is not working, because they tried again and again to send a mail and kept the counter over the limit. For they did not understand what was causing it.
On the dashboard (intro page) there is the option "Outgoing Mail Control" and there the link "See report". When clicking on "See report" I get a "Warning: Permission denied." error message when being logged in as the full administrator. Is this due to an error in an update or what is going on here?
I have upgrade from 11.0 to 11.5 three days ago and yesterday then from 11.5 to 12 due to the need of the outgoing mail control limit feature... but that ist not working.
I have enabled the feature and set a limit for one emailadress to two mails per hour. i have sent definitely more then 3 test mails via this email address but nothing happens.. and when i look into the statistics screen - this email address has sent 0 mails in the last 12 hours - which is definitely wrong. Seems the piece in the middle which counts mails etc is not working... how does the outgoing control limit works? is there some special configuration needed after an upgrade etc?
The Outgoing Mail Control feature is working fine. One missing option with this feature is to view the contents of blocked messages. Unfortunately, sometimes a site gets hacked and is sending spam. which are over the message sending limit, to try to find out where the message came from.
The current problem is that the email message contents of the limitation warning with subject "Attempts to exceed outgoing limits for domains, mail boxes and subscriptions." is not correct. Somehow it only contains the text: date.timezone = "Europe/Amsterdam" (which is a PHP setting) instead of a descriptive message. I hoped it would contain the blocked message contents or some useful text. Can I change the contents of this message to the what is should be? And what should it be?
It looks like a problem I had ones before where the custom PHP settings at the hosting packages level and at the domains level where replaced with some other kind of settings string. But solved by just changing the custom PHP settings
I keep having certain domains being hijacked and mass emails being sent from them somehow. I've disabled mail within domain control panel for each domain and issue keeps occurring. I've limited # of emails as well to 2-5 per hour but now so many are trying to be sent from my server it is clogging up mail queue and I have to log into server via ssh and run postsuper -d ALL every day or two. It is very frustrating. The only way I can stop it is to disable domain in plesk panel but that is not an option.
What can I do to find the cause of this issue and stop it?
Plesk 12.0.18 on CentOS 6.5 using Postfix...i have configured outgoing mail control to have a limit on a domain. I have removed all entries from the server wide white list.This setting - Allow scripts and users to use Sendmail is unchecked.However I can send any number of messages using PHP's mail() command from a PHP script on the domain.I see this in the maillog:Error during 'limit-out' handler...But the email is sent and no limit is applied.
