    Is there no way to make this persistent? A non-persistent solution is no solution at all.

    I saw https://support.plesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/115001743034-How-to-configure-an-external-SMTP-server-in-Plesk and thought that might be a solution, but that removes Dovecot.

    Given how many hosts block outgoing mail, there should be a simple way to manage and receive domain email through Plesk while using an external SMTP server.

    I have configured according to the document but how can we test that configuration working properly?

    This is a critical feature. My VPS is on GoDaddy and they require outgoing mail to go through their relay server. I'm using ISP Config (which is an open source hosting manager) on another VPS server through GoDaddy and it has relay host setup built-in so I just assumed it was a normal feature. Without it neither I nor any of my clients can send emails unless I dig into the Postfix config and risk it getting broken on every update.

    It is obviously not a viable solution if it isn't persistent.

    server team try to send a test message for example with webmail, review then /var/log/maillog to see if message was sent by the server.

    Please provide a solution to avoid configuration overwrite by a Plesk update / upgrade. 

    An option to change default outbound SMTP port / relay port from the Plesk panel will be much better.

    I created a feature request:

    Hopefully you will accept it so there won't be an outgoing mail issue on Google Cloud VMs.

    I agree with previous posters, there should be an easy and persistent solution to send emails via a third party SMTP provider whilst using Plesk to  receive domain emails. It is a feature I need and I am struggling to piece together different apps to get something that works.

    Hi LiveDNS Ltd,

    I see your inquiry is being addressed already in a support ticket. As for the default port suggestion, I recommend creating a feature request about this in our User Voice if you feel it is important https://plesk.uservoice.com/forums/184549-feature-suggestions. In case it will become popular it may be implemented in future Plesk versions.

    Hi, Artur Beqiraj!

    Because we're not experts in Amazon SES, I'd recommend contacting Amazon Support/community to confirm if it can be used as an alternative.
