Cannot use short mail account names authentication

Symptoms

I have qmail installed but cannot see "Use of short (webmaster) and full (webmaster@domain.com) POP3/IMAP mail account names is allowed" option on mail settings page.

When trying to turn this option via command line the following error occurs

# plesk bin mailserver --set-account-type both 
Unable to set requested account format: Unable to use short and full mail accounts.
exit status 1

Cause

Dovecot is installed as IMAP/POP3 server.

Resolution

Only Qmail + Courier-IMAP  combination supports short mail account names authentication. Install Courier-IMAP via GUI or command line

# plesk sbin autoinstaller --select-release-current --install-component courier
