    Hello @Arnaud, such behavior was not reproduced on a test server, the command worked without issues.

    # plesk sbin mailmng-service --stop-service
    # plesk -v
    Product version: Plesk Onyx 17.8.11 Update #8
    Update date: 2018/05/24 18:04
    Build date: 2018/05/17 15:37
    OS version: CentOS 7.4.1708

    What OS do you use and what mail server do you have installed?

    weird ...
    here are the same commands, 
    no clue about the mail server installed (or maybe no mail server installed, I was trying to setup external smtp but realized a mail server might be mandatory for relaying .. ?)

    root@platform:~# plesk sbin mailmng-service --stop-service
    Unknown Plesk command-line utility: "mailmng-service"
    root@platform:~# plesk -v
