Is it possible to set up mail (IMAP/SMTP) settings autodiscover in Plesk?

    This is a wanted feature since 2015... It has a lot of votes in Plesk User Voice, but it appears that voting doesn't help getting this feature on the Plesk roadmap. If autodiscover is important to you, consider using cPanel or any other panel but Plesk.

    Hello @Clemens,

    Thank you for the feedback.

    Plesk development team is constantly working on adding new functionality and enhancing the existing one.

    As the feature has the "open discussion" status, developers are interested in adding this functionality to Plesk and are in process of gaining additional info.

    Due to technical difficulties or more high priority features some functionality is added less quickly when expected.

    Please, subscribe to this article and you will be notified in case this function will be added. Unfortunately, there is no exact ETA.

    I understand that there are more urgent matters but after 4 years?....

    Dit subject has a lot of votes and for administrators the mail settings are a big pain!
    It would be nice to have soms kind of ETA after 4 years waiting.

    At the moment I can only say, that the feature for auto-discovering mail settings will be taken into consideration to revise the scope of improvements to be done in the next major Plesk release. However, we cannot guarantee whether or not this functionality will be included.

    Thanks for your reply. 

    To be honest your saying nothing.. it could go either way... 
    What's the purpose of the Plesk Votes if you're not doing anything with those votes...

    We'll just have to wait and see... that's not a very good service.

    Hello @Spinnerz,

    Thank you for the valuable feedback.

    Plesk Development Team does its best to polish Plesk and implement new functionality.

    However, indeed, for some features, it takes more time to be added due to, for example, the complexity of the function or due to features with higher priority.

    Unfortunately, there is still no ETA yet but as soon as there will be any additional news, this article will be updated. Click "follow" to be notified when the article will be updated.

    Thank you for understanding.
