Starting on October 19, 2021, we will enable single-sign-on for our Plesk Support Center to provide a seamless login/account experience. This implies that you’ll be able to use a single account across any of our web-facing properties.
To be prepared for this change and to avoid the need to register during your next ticket submission after the change, we encourage you to create an account here before October 19 using the same email address as your current Zendesk login (support account). It’s essential that you use the same email address on our support center to ensure that your tickets stay attached to the same account. You will continue to use ZenDesk authentication until we switch over to single-sign-on on October 19th.

Mail client provides warnings regarding IMAP connection for Plesk mailboxes: inotify initialization error

    Hi Anastasia Zyrianova,

    Thank you for this post.

    We did increase the inotify value up to 300 but the warning is still showing up on Outlook clients.

    A customer email address is only used on one computer so very few connections.

    What do you recommend in this case?

    Thank you in advance and wish you have a good day.

    Hello Quentin Di Meo,

    Check the current per-userid limit of inotify file descriptors using the command below, and adjust the `fs.inotify.max_user_instances` value accordingly:

    # cat /proc/sys/fs/inotify/max_user_instances

    In case the issue still persists after that, check /var/log/maillog log file for details.
