New Anti-Spam Plugin for Plesk Hosted Mailboxes

spam photo

This announcement is only intended for customers who have their own custom domain name hosted on one of our Plesk hosting servers.

Our Plesk hosting servers make use of the #1 Open Source anti-spam platform, Spamassassin. Next week we will be implementing an additional anti-spam plugin (Warden Anti-spam and Virus Protection), on our Plesk hosting servers, to enhance the existing Spamassassin system. If you have a domain and e-mail hosted on one of our Plesk hosting servers, you may notice a reduction in the amount of spam/junk e-mail you receive. Additionally, you may see some additional controls and options, regarding spam filtering, in the Plesk control panel.

As with all anti-spam systems, it may require some tweaking at the individual level, before it works optimally. If you notice that some messages are being flagged as spam, that shouldn’t be, please contact us so we can make appropriate adjustments to your individual settings.

[Resolved] Web Hosting Server Downtime (ServInt to Leaseweb Migration)

Note: Updates will be posted to the top of this page, with the previous messages further down…

[Update 12/26/2018]
The server provider resolved the Plesk license issue on the afternoon of 12/24/2018. The Plesk Control Panel is available, again.

[Update 12:00am 12/8/2018]
The server provider has resolved the mySQL database issues. Websites that use a mySQL database are, again, working properly. There remains a Plesk Control Panel license issue which prevents logging into the Plesk Control Panel to make changes. We have a trouble ticket open for this issue and are waiting for a resolution. With the exception of the license issues, it appears all services on the Plesk6 hosting server are back up and running.
