Plesk 12.x / Linux :: VPS Server - How To Install Email Account
Feb 23, 2015
I just got a vps server with plesk 12 on it. I've added domains and so far so good. But I can't figure out how to install the email accounts.
I've made de email accounts and when adding these accounts to my mail program I wanted to use mail.domain.com or imap.domain.com But it doesn't work? And I need to use the smtp host of the internetprovider?
How can I use imap.domain.com and smtp.domain.com to get and send my emails?
Also Is there any way how to check if my server is installed ok and there are no security issues? Because I'm a noob I don't know what the best settings are?
I am having trouble with setting up an email account to set up the email I go to Mail > Create Email Address > and enter email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) and check the "access to control panel" and create a password and also check "mailbox" .
But in the email client, when I go to use SMTP and I enter the following info:
- SMTP Server: example.com - username: email@example.com - password: password I created above - port 25 - user TLS
I get this error: Your other email provider is responding too slowly. Please try again later, or contact the administrator of your other domain for further information.
I registered a domain name and setup a Linux server on GoDaddy, choosing Plesk panel with Power Pack. Inside the panel I created an email address, which I can access from the webmail interface without problems. I decided to setup my clients as well, using the IMAP configuration, as I'm using multiple devices.
I followed the instructions for Outlook express and I was able to setup the account on my virtual machine, with Windows 7 and Windows Live Mail.Though, speaking of the host machine, a MacBook Pro, I normally use Apple Mail that comes with MacOS. Instructions for setting up Mail are updated back to Snow Leopard at least and they do not work properly. I tried various configurations, but I was only able to receive mail on the account, while sending won't work at all.
I'd like Parallels to update the guide or, at least, to open a KB page with the solution(s) to this issue: I googled it and found out that it is a common issue.
When I change an email address on a user's account I get this error?
Internal error: mailmng-mailname failed: Unable to open dir /var/qmail/mailnames/mydomain.com/stevebrown/@attachments: No such file or directory System error 2: No such file or directory

I have server with the Plesk control panel on Linux server and want to install ffmpeg + MPlayer + LAME + FLVtool2 + MediaInfo + Mencoder + MP4Box + neroAacEnc , but not sure about the steps to install it. Is there any script or easy steps to install ffmpeg + MPlayer + LAME + FLVtool2 + MediaInfo + Mencoder + MP4Box + neroAacEnc on my server.
Basically I am trying to configure Plesk to send out email without being black listed. My emails are safe but I am currently blacklisted due to my set up.I have Plesk 12.0.18 and am using Qmail. The problem is I have one ip address right now and am using it for multiple domains. This is not ideal but was an issue with 1and1 not rendering ips at the time. I am not sure how to do reverse mapping with multiple domains on a single ip address.
Because my current ip address just got black listed is it possible to get 2 more ip addresses just for email and use those 2 for 2 domains so each domain would have a separate ip address? How would I set this up to be email safe meeting the spam requirements? spf, reverse mapping, etc?
Not sure if I labeled that correctly, but I am looking to setup a multi-server where I offer a cloud ssd hosting plan, and sata hosting plan. The current setup has ssd hosting, but id like to add another ip address, as well as its hard drive to host other websites on that specific server, which is sata based.
For example, I add a domain to my plesk 12 admin account and choose the added Ip address (the sata based one), where it points to that server to access the files for that specific website.
At the moment, cloudflare handles all of my dns settings.. but I am totally lost on how this needs to be setup and if I am required to purchase another plesk license. I am trying to avoid purchasing another plesk license and having to setup a whole new plesk installation just to do this.. This is a vps by the way, not a dedicated server...
I've just installed a Plesk 12 vServer and created a customer with a email adress. I took the informations shown in the Power-User-Panel under "emails" with the correct ports. After clicking on "finish" it shows that Thunderbird has a problem with a certificate from Plesk.
I don't want that this error message will be shown for customers.My primary domain of the vServer has a SSL-certificate. Could I use this primary-domain to avoid the error message (the server-adress would be different)? If I use the primary domain inside the server-adress Thunderbird will say "there is no email account on this server".
actually i want to know is this sending this email by my smtp server?

I have completed email set up on my server and have checked that email ports are open, but for some reason outlook keeps returning : "Outlook cannot find the server. Verify the server information is entered correctly in the Account Settings, and that you DNS settings in the Network pane of System Preferences are correct."
The odd thing is that outlook still picks up emails if I receive any, but keeps returning above error every minute.
I have upgraded to a new server and need to move all domains, users, and most important all email accounts to the new server.
Both servers run Plesk 11.0.9 on CentOS. The migration manager works great, no problems with that.
After migrating, I change my DNS settings at an external DNS provider to the new IP. The problem is, DNS changes take time. I then get emails on the old server and on the new server until DNS information is spread.
I was searching for a way to let the old server forward to the new one, but changes for specific domains in plesks DNS system (MX record) on the old server did not work. The mails still arrived at the old server.
What can i do? Can I uncheck "Activate mail service on domain" and will all emails be rejected until DNS points to the new server? Or will that lead to bounces?
I'm having difficulty sending an email to another email address (with a different domain) which is on the same VPS.The trouble is, on the other domain's VPS control panel, within the DNS settings, the MX records have been pointed externally (to an exchange server). Their email is turned off. But bizarrely, their mailbox is full.
It seems as though Plesk is ignoring the MX records, and sending MY email internally to the OTHER domain's mailbox on the same VPS.How do I get Plesk to send my mail to the correct EXTERNAL MX records?
I have a VPS (vps.example.com) setup with few sub accounts set-up. All sub accounts can send emails using specified domain, however email header will always display my VPS's name.
"from localhost ([127.0.0.1] helo=example.NET) by vps.example.com" Is it possible to set it up so every account has it's own server name for example: smtp.example.net mail.example.org or vps.domain.com
