How To Check Plesk MTA And How To Switch From QMail To Postfix And Back?

There are two MTA that are supported by Plesk since version 9:

– Qmail
– Postfix

Each time, only one of them is used by Parallels Plesk Panel.The MTA that is currently used by Parallels Plesk Panel is shown on the

Services management page at Home -> Services Management:

SMTP Server (Postfix)

or

SMTP Server (QMail)

And you can also check the through command line:

/usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/mailmng --features | grep SMTP_Server
$features[‘SMTP_Server’] = “QMail“;
$features[‘SMTP_Server_package’] = “psa-qmail“;

OR

/usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/mailmng --features | grep SMTP_Server
$features[‘SMTP_Server’] = “Postfix“;
$features[‘SMTP_Server_package’] = “Postfix“;

You can switch the MTA from Qmail to Postfix and back using an autoinstaller script.

Run the script without parameters

~# /usr/local/psa/bin/autoinstaller

and select Parallels Plesk Panel 9 (currently installed) on the fourth page. Disable all other applications like SSO and Sitebuilder.

On the Main components list for Plesk page, select Qmail or Postfix mailserver and click Enter to complete the installation.

Alternatively, you may run the following command to switch MTA to Postfix:

~# /usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/autoinstaller --select-release-current --install-component postfix

and the following command to switch to Qmail:

~# /usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/autoinstaller --select-release-current --install-component qmail
