Plesk 12.x / Linux :: Prevent Use Of Local Mailserver

Nov 12, 2014

We set up a Plesk 12 server for web hosting purposes only.

All mail-related services, exception from "smtp server" and "Plesk milter" are disabled or uninstalled.

For specific domains, we want to prevent the useage of the php mail function with "localhost" to avoid problems with outgoing spam by unsecured scripts. Instead, we want to force webmasters to use external smtp servers.

Is there any directive or setting on domain-level that we allow for this limitation?

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: Secure Connection To Mailserver Won't Work

Feb 17, 2015

I'm using plesk with CentOS 6.6 and the postfix/courier mail services...I tried to connect an existing mail account with a mail program like thunderbird. But I'm not able to connect to it, except when I'm using "no connection security"...So I tried, if manually contacting the POP3s Port is working:

openssl s_client -ssl3 -host -port 995
with the following result:

no peer certificate available
No client certificate CA names sent


the same results come for trying to connect to port 465 (ssmtp) and 993 (imaps)port 443 (https) seems to work fine..i already checked if the corresponding certificates exist (e.g. /usr/share/imapd.pem) and filled with the standard certificate informtaion given by plesk checking openssl on the server gives the following result:

# openssl version
OpenSSL 1.0.1e-fips 11 Feb 2013

is there anything I have missed to configure?

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: Changed Mailserver - Open Xchange Inbox Shows No New Emails

Jun 12, 2015

I changed the Plesk mailserver from Courier to Dovecot. All went good, but after the Install i can not see new E-Mails in my Inbox. Even the Search does not Work.

I can change the Mailserver again and use Courier. This works and i can see my emails. But only with Courier.

Some details:

Inbox has 100 E-mails. After scrolling down to the first emails, i can even see the newest email. But i have to scroll down and load all E-Mails.

Changing "Sort by" from "Date" to "Unread" all emails appear, even the latest. But changing to "Date" the newest email is missing again. Only a Number on my Inbox button shows me there has to be a new email in there.

The Open Xchange Team can not find any errors, the open xchange log looks good.

Plesk 11.x / Linux :: FileShare Email Links Not Working With MSMTP Relay Only Mailserver

Jun 20, 2014

We were using the mailserver on our linux install, but have since changed over to an ms exchange server. With that I removed the mailserver and installed MSMTP relay only mailserver (SMTP client) option.

I configured the External SMTP Server settings under Tools & Settings / Mail with a valid email address password host name and port of 587. When I save it says settings saved.

Since doing this I have been unable to use the email link option for share files in the file share portion of my domain. When I try to select a user from the list to send the email to or even type an external email all I get is the error "Unable to send email".

When I checked the maillog file in /usr/local/psa/var/log, I get this error "Jun 20 15:42:59 u16271698 msmtp: tls=off auth=on from=psaadm errormsg='cannot use a secure authentication method' exitcode=EX_UNAVAILABLE"

Where I have proper emails configured where I placed ""

How can I get this working with the MSMTP relay only mailserver (SMTP client) option installed?

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: Prevent 502 Error For All Sites When Changing Configs

Nov 19, 2014

I have a Plesk 12 server running that works great. But the problem is that whenever one of my shared hosting customers changes something out a domain or subdomain, all the other sites on the server give a 502 error.

The reason why is clear to me: apache is reloading its config while nginx is still active, but sees apache as being down and therefor throws a 502 error.

Is there any way to prevent this from happening? Because it's happening a lot and people are sending in 'site down' reports while there's actually nothing wrong with the server or their site.

Plesk 11.x / Linux :: Backup Works Only Local - No FTP

Jun 16, 2013

My server works fine like expected, but isn't uploaded to ftp. It was in 11.0.9, same after upgrading to 11.5.29.

The ftp repository in plesk shows a manually done older backup, so ftp connection seems to be ok.

In ftp repository settings I get an error, if I try to safe anything, ftp server, user and password are correct, manual ftp connection is working fine.

The error is:

Plesk 11.x / Linux :: Enable The Local-infile Option

Apr 23, 2014

I'm using on virtual machine the last version of PLESK 11.5.3 update #42 and UBUNTU 12.04.4 LTS provide by a main Italian ISP, the MySQL version is 5.5.35-0ubuntu0.12.04.2.I'm trying to enable the local-infile option in the /etc/mysql/my.cnf file:

local-infile = 1

local-infile = 1

When I'm restarting mysql service (with command "service mysql restart") the PHP script works correctly and "SHOW GLOBAL VARIABLES" results "ON", but when server reboot or some hours by the restart the PHP script return to not work correctly and appear the standard messagge: "The used command is not allowed with this MySQL version".Maybe the problem is the start of mysql on boot? I haven't any errors in the mysql or system log!!

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: Local IP Address Blocked By Feature Fail2ban

Jul 23, 2014

There is a strange problem with the new feature fail2ban. I have noticed that a local ip address (ip address from the webserver itself) was added to the blocked ip addresses of fail2ban now for the second time. What I can see is that it was the recidive jail.

If there is nginx used as reverse proxy you get a "502 Bad Gateway". Any way to find out more about the reason why an ip address is added to the list of blocked ip addresses in fail2ban?

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: Local Repository And Remote FTP (subscription) Backup

May 30, 2015

keep a local and remote backup of certain subscriptions or at least have a full server backup on FTP.

I have a reseller account which allows be to quite cheaply add 512GB of remote storage accessible through SFTP, FTP and WebDAV. I created this partition and added it as a server-level FTP repository in Plesk 12 (latest build). During testing I added a firewall exception for traffic on the FTP IP-address and figured that I had to put the FTP repository in passive mode to properly connect.

After setting this up I ran a configuration only backup to test if everything was working properly. The backup was created properly and can be accessed through the FTP as well: success!

My second test was running a full server backup through the manager. The ±40GB file was created properly (I could see my disk usage increase and decrease through new relic monitoring) and supposedly transferred to the FTP repository according to Plesk.

When I look at the FTP or the Plesk Backup Manager both indicate that the full server backup is 0kb in size.

After this issue I figured: I really don't care about a full server backup, I mostly care about a specific set of subscriptions that have new content on a daily basis and need to be backed up properly as well. Those subscriptions are already on a daily or weekly backup scheme that places backups on the local repository.

What I would eventually like to do is create daily or weekly backups on the local repository and create weekly or monthly backups on the FTP repository for those specific subscriptions, but unfortunately you cannot (by default) setup Plesk to automatically backup to local and remote based on different or even the same intervals.

And this is the more important question: How to be able to create/setup a backup automation that keeps local and remote backups for the same or different intervals? Either through the Plesk interface, a plugin or a script?

Running Plesk 12 on CentOS 6.6


Just tried running the same server wide backup, but this time as a multivolume backup. This resulted in the following error:

ERROR: () Can't upload file 'backup_info_1505301327.xml' to ftp. Error code: 1

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: Local Disk Space Needed For Full Backup

Apr 4, 2015

How much local disk space is necessary for a full backup of 240 GB data to a remote ftp?

I have 314 GB free on my local disk, but this is still not enough.

The backup process is 100% after round about 4 hours, according to Backup Manager.

But there are still tar processes until the disk is full.

VPS As Mailserver

Apr 15, 2009

I've got some questions regarding use of a VPS as a mail-server. I've had this little domain since 1996, and it's not only my main e-mail but now also my family, extended family, close friends and work colleagues. No complaints with my current shared host, except their mail-server just isn't cutting it. They've even stated as much, and suggested users not happy about performance move to g-mail. Whatever, I want my name at my domain. So, I'm thinking I should just get myself a VPS to use mostly as a mail-server (the website it self gets like, 10 unique hits/month from totally lost Googlers)

I'd like to keep things around $70/month, a price well worth it IMHO to not have to be told 'the webmail is down again.' I have no way to determine my total mail bandwidth, but I'm guessing 10-20 legitimate e-mails in and out per day with about 2 dozen users.

Any thoughts on pitfalls, or advice? How does the actual network connection work? I.E, if the VPS has a 10mbps Ethernet connection with 10 total users, does each user get a dedicated 1mbps connection? Also, any good recommendations? I'm looking a liquidweb, but really have no clue. Location doesn't matter, but I'm Ohio so anything nearby might be refreshing for a change.

My technical experience isn't great, but I am able to RTFM and have setup a Debian server on scrap hardware with trixbox installed, so I'm guessing it's not much harder than that. This all kind of started out as a hobby, but has oddly enough become a bit vital for myself and others who use email@mydomain.

WHM/CPanel VPS Mailserver (MTA)

Apr 16, 2008

I am talking about a WHM/Cpanel setup. Is there a way to convince the Exim mailserver (MTA) to get any of the hosted domain name in the "HELO" greeting when dispatching mail? Many ISPs deny accepting mail when the smtp domain name in the setting of a mail client program does not match the vps main hostname.

The only workaround seems to be to change the smtp server name for all domains to be identical to the main server (setup) name.

In detail: When you setup more then one domain on your vps and use your own dns/bind, then CPanel installs the domain records in a way that mail exchange is set to e.g. 14400 IN MX 10
mail 14440 IN A

which basically instruct your vps that email client programs can connect to the "" host for pop (imap) as well as smtp using the subdomain name with the respective ports.

Now, Cpanels MTA (mail transfer agent) exim uses only the vps setup domain name as mailserver address and all Outgoing eMails always show the setup domain or one of its subdomains (depending on setup) in the mail header, no matter which of your vps domains sends the mail.

This way you most likely run into the situation that a couple of ISPs deny accepting your (or your clients) eMails because your (actually one and only) "mailserver does not have their host name in the greeting".

technically, if you telnet (no need to ssh) to on port 25 the response will be ESMTP Exim 4.52 #1 Sun, 26 Mar 2006 ...
220-We do not authorize the use of this system to transport unsolicited,
220 and/or bulk e-mail.
and, in case you send a helo command to this connection, the result is
250 Hello []

That means some mails sent out with might be rejected as spam.

Is there a way to get exim to display
250 Hello []
250 Hello []
