Though companies tend to use multiple social tools, email marketing remains a top way for brands to contact clients. However, many lack the time or technical expertise to manage a mail server, let alone manage its potential threats. Hence why outsourcing mail server management is so popular, despite the cost. But with a Plesk mail server, you have a hosting panel linking system services and the user. So you can self-manage mailboxes on your website domain, manage mailing lists, and more. Let’s discuss what you can dowith Plesk Mail Server Management.

Configuring Server-Wide Mail Settings

Email Management in Plesk

Plesk works with your mail server software – the key provider of email services for mailboxes and mailing lists. Once you install this, the mail server auto-configures and you’re all set to use it. However, we recommend you review the default settings to ensure these meet your business needs.

When it comes to general settings, we suggest you leave the Enable mail management functions in Plesk checked. So your users can create custom email accounts and use the mail services the Plesk-managed mail server provides. They can also change the Installed mail server and Installed IMAP/POP3 server with the corresponding links leading to the Plesk Installer GUI page.

You should also consider limiting the size of email addresses and of incoming email through your server. Just by inputting a value in KB in the Maximum message size box. Linux users can change default mail server limits on the simultaneous connections users can make to the server.
