Question

How to recreate mail handlers in Plesk 10.4 and later?

Answer

1. Check if mail handlers exist on your server:

    # /usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/mail_handlers_control --list

'SpamAssassin' or 'DrWeb' can be temporarily enabled and an email sent to a mailbox on the server (locally):

    server4:~# mail server4@example.com
Subject: test
test
.
Cc:
server4:~#

2. Examine the mail log to see if the mail handlers are executed:

    # tail /usr/local/psa/var/log/maillog | grep qmail-queue-handlers
Mar 29 09:32:23 server4 qmail-queue-handlers...
...

3. Recreate mail handlers

3.1 Run mchk to regenerate mail handlers:

# /usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/mchk --with-spam
==> Checking for: mailsrv_conf_init... ok
==> Checking for: mail_handlers_init... ok
==> Checking for: mailsrv_entities_dump... ok
==> Checking for: mail_admin_aliases... ok
==> Checking for: mail_auth_dump... ok
==> Checking for: mailman_lists_dump... ok
==> Checking for: mail_kav8_restore... ok
==> Checking for: mail_responder_restore... ok
==> Checking for: mail_spam_restore... ok
==> Checking for: mail_grey_restore... ok
==> Checking for: mail_mailbox_restore... ok
==> Checking for: mail_spf_restore... ok
==> Checking for: mail_dk_restore... ok
==> Checking for: mail_drweb_restore... ok
#

3.2 Check that the mail handlers were created and that they are applied by repeating the steps #1 and #2.
