Starting on October 19, 2021, we will enable single-sign-on for our Plesk Support Center to provide a seamless login/account experience. This implies that you’ll be able to use a single account across any of our web-facing properties.
To be prepared for this change and to avoid the need to register during your next ticket submission after the change, we encourage you to create an account here before October 19 using the same email address as your current Zendesk login (support account). It’s essential that you use the same email address on our support center to ensure that your tickets stay attached to the same account. You will continue to use ZenDesk authentication until we switch over to single-sign-on on October 19th.

    Hi Dmitry Surovtsev,

    My apologies, we will need to change <localServer.IP> by real server IP, right?

    Hello @Ben Rafael,

    You are right, placeholder <localServer.IP> should be replaced by an actual server IP-Address.

    For example:

    CONFIG_TEXT: Host                 Record Type    Value
    example.com.                  MX    (10) mail.example.com.
    mail.example.com.              A    203.0.113.2

    Hello ! I'm currently moving an old website from OVH into a new plesk installation I host myself.

    I want to keep the OVH webmail so my client doesn't have to change to a new one.

    The old OVH DNS rules are 

    website.com.     MX      mail.website.com. 

    mail.website.com.      CNAME    ns0.ovh.com.

     

    So in theory, from my new plesk DNS if I the same CNAME rules towards ns0.ovh.com. My emails should be sent back to the old webmail, right ?

    Hi,

    If you will continue hosting mail on OVH and use Plesk only for website hosting, when above should work.

    Not quite sure how to configure the SRV records...

    But those examples do not specify the port, which is necessary algonside the priority and the weight. I guess the port depends on the server configuration?

    Hey @...,

    I believe IP addresses are not meant to be added to MX records,

    I get this error in in Cloudflare when adding my IP in the second record 

    DNS Validation Error (Code: 1004) Content for MX record must be a hostname.

    For more info see this: https://blog.hboeck.de/archives/904-Please-do-not-put-IP-addresses-into-DNS-MX-records.html
