How to send notifications from Plesk server when no mail components are installed?
In order to send notifications, Plesk is using the integration with mail components installed along with it.
When no mail components are available, Plesk is not able to communicate with the SMTP service and use it to send notifications or mail generated by user scripts.
So in order to enable this functionality, it is required to perform the following:
- Log into Plesk.
- Install MSMTP (Relay only) component via Tools & Settings > Updates and Upgrades.
- Configure relaying mail server which will be used for sending notifications in Tools & Settings > External SMTP Server and made sure that Allow Plesk to send email notifications through this SMTP server is checked.
Note: Local Postfix instance can be used as well
