Plesk 12.x / Linux :: Using Custom SSL For IMAP / POP3
Mar 6, 2015
I purchased an ssl certificate and installed it in plesk via server->ssl certificates. I then followed the following guide to set up imap and pop to use my cert (instead of using the default i used my cert into) URL... Now I'm getting an issue with sending emails, something about SSLHandshakeException, and some clients can't even log in. MTs support mentioned this might have something to do with POODLE.
We are using Plesk 11.5 servers with CentOS 6 and Courier-IMAP 4.12. Customers are experiencing several problems when using their IMAP mailbox in Outlook 2013:
Sending mail over SSL (port 465) will fail if SSL certificate does not match the mail.domain.tld setting. Resolution is provided by [URL] ....
IMAP folders (including INBOX) are not listed. Resolution is provided by [URL] ....
Sent items are not stored (nor online, nor offline). TechNet says that SENT and DELETED folders are no longer configurable by design. The only way to get sent items in a folder is by setting up a custom rule and using Visual Basic (!) to mark the messages as read.
My server is Plesk 12 with Postfix and Courier IMAP i am also using Thunderbird as mail client...
My question is when i create a folder from my mail client or webmail they just appear as sub folders of my inbox which is not what i want, i want root level folders not to be under inbox... When i searched for this i found [URL] ....
Is this still the case? Is there anything i can do to have root level folders?
I have a client with a dedicated server running. Spec below.
The problem I am having is with incoming email. When I set up a new email account it can take about 10 attempts to log on to the incoming mail server. Once it has connected it will be ok for a short while then I will get a connection error and no emails will come through.
This is happening across all platforms, PC / MAC / iPhone and iPad.
I am a web designer with limited knowledge of the setting up of the server and was looking to set up email server within plesk.

Customers who use Outlook or Mozilla Thunderbird cannot send Emails through IMAP (Courier) because their mailclients say "Cannot write to sent Folder" even when there is a "Sent" Folder in the IMAP Structure existing. It is also subscribed by the Client.
Outlook Users have to go to: file - account settings > account settungs > Change > more Settings > advanced > root Folder path and enter the word inbox
Mozilla Users have to enter "INBOX." under advanced IMAP Settings in Thunderbird.
So my question is: Why is that ? And cant i Change something as admin on the Server side so all customers dont have to Panic and set an inbox Folder path in their mailclients ?
For customers it has to work without Client-side configuration...
My Customers and I have Problems connecting to IMAP-Server. By moving through IMAP Folders I get the Massage "Unable to connect to your IMAP server. You may have exceeded the maximum number of connections to this server"
I know this Article: [URL] ... and all the other related to this issue.
When adding a subscription with a certain plan, I get this error"Error: The plan was not applied: Custom changes in PHP settings" almost instantly after I initiated the creation of the new subscription. Another service plan doesn't have the issue, and though I tried finding the reason why one works while the other doesn't I simply wasn't able to. The service plan in question is used for over 40 others without a problem just when I select it for a new subscription, I get the mentioned error message.I am using Plesk 12 on Linux, all latest updates installed.
Would like to know how to implement css and images to work with custom error documents. For some reason the folders are ignored even with the correct path being entered within the html. Only plain text appears.
Every time i use Dovecot secure IMAP server with Sieve support.I can not receive emails note. Upgraded from 11.5 to 12

I know I'm probably doing something wrong, but I cannot get Android KitKat phones to authenticate via IMAP to my Plesk 12 server (straight out of the box). Not sure if it is an issue with standard dovecot config or Android, but the only way I can get them to connect is via pop3.
I'm trying to find Courier IMAP config: /etc/courier/imapd
Because i would like to edit the parameters for the trash folder (see qoute and link below)
The file on my server is not there. I did some grep and locate commands and was unable to find it.
##NAME: IMAP_EMPTYTRASH:0 # # The following setting is optional, and causes messages from the given # folder to be automatically deleted after the given number of days. # IMAP_EMPTYTRASH is a comma-separated list of folder:days. The default # setting, below, purges 7 day old messages from the Trash folder. # Another useful setting would be: # # IMAP_EMPTYTRASH=Trash:7,Sent:30
I have the web pro edition panel 12 on centos 6.5 64bit, and i have made some custom firewall rules in order to be able to run a teamspeak server. The problem is that the firewall randomly blocks the teamspeak port and keeps it blocked unless i restart the firewall.
We are successfully using fail2ban on our server (CentOS 6.6, Plesk 12.0.18), that is, jails running and blocking potential intruders
However, we tried to create a custom jail for the CMS that is being used by most of our clients.
I followed the instructions (Tools & Settings > IP Address Banning (Fail2Ban) > Jails > Manage Filters > Add Filter) and created the filter I wanted, but then it does not appear in the list, even though it displays a message reading that the filter was created successfully. Then, if I try to create a new Jail, the filter is not available from the list.
Looking at the directory /etc/fail2ban/filter.d/ I can find a file that has the same name as the filter I created, with a .local extension (the file name does not contain whitespaces or other special characters)...
Have some very important questions regarding changing plesk ports and creating full backups.
1. When changing plesks port number, what exactly will it effect? Will it effect auto updates, etc.?
2. When creating a backup, I'd like to backup the entire server to rollback at anytime when changes are made to core files, is this possible?
3. With backups, somehow I'd like to schedule backups to possibly make nightly copies to an external hard drive on my computer for a fail safe method just in case the server happens to crash and I'd need to restore to another server/service. How would this be possible?
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'm having trouble with horde it is giving me the following error:
Auth_imap: Required IMAP extension not found.
Now I pretty much know why that error is coming up I'm missing the IMAP module. What I don't understand is if it was their before why is it gone now. The last thing I did on the server was upgrade Perl.
I would like to get rid of this error but I'm afraid the only solutions will wipe my current setup. If of course their is a way to fix this error without ruining my current setup that would be a lot more useful
The main thing I want to do is retrieve an address book from the horde server. How would I go about finding where the address book is stored through the command line.
