- Plesk for Linux
How and when the
/etc/msmtprc file can be overwritten by Plesk? Is it possible to keep the configuration in this file untouched?
/etc/msmtprc is regenerated each time the changes are applied in the Tools & Settings > External SMTP Server menu.
For example, after disabling the SMTP server requires encrypted connection option:
After the Plesk update the
/etc/msmtprc will be left untouched.
To keep the
/etc/msmtprc file unchanged, do not modify the settings of the External SMTP Server so the file is not regenerated by Plesk automatically.
