There are 2 ways to create a mailbox for a subdomain:
- Create new subdomain as Website domain (not as Subdomain):
Subscriptions > example.com > Add domain > sub.example.com
This way a new domain will be created under a subscription and the functionality to create new mailbox accounts will be available.
- Use command line utility to create a mail account for a subdomain (available for Windows only):
"%plesk_cli%\\subscription.exe" -u sub.example.com -mail_service true
"%plesk_cli%\\mail.exe" --create firstname.lastname@example.org -passwd ***** -mailbox true
Note, that webmail service is not available for subdomains.
