Mail server does not work. How to repair the mail server configuration

APPLIES TO:
  • Parallels Plesk

Symptoms

The Mail server does not work in a Parallels Plesk Panel (Plesk) server. How can I repair the mail server configuration?

Resolution

Use the mchk utility to repair/rebuild the mail server configuration and restore the settings for all mailboxes created in Plesk.

For Linux:

 ~# /usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/mchk --help
 Restore settings for all mailboxes.
 Usage: /usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/mchk [OPTION]

 OPTIONS:
   --without-spam   restore all settings except for SpamAssassin configuration
   --with-spam      restore all settings
   --spam-only      restore only SpamAssassin settings

 Usage example:

~# /usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/mchk --with-spam

For Windows:

Warning! Only settings that were applied to mailboxes through the Plesk interface or command-line utilities will be restored by mchk. Any custom configuration options, applied by other means (e.g. through your mail server's configuration console) will be lost.

 C:\>"%plesk_bin%\mchk" --help
 usage: mchk [options] ...

     --help
     --all             [--fix=all|local]
     --domain          --domain-name= [--fix=local]
     --domains         --domain-names=| [--via-file] [--fix=local]
     --all-domains     [--fix=local]
     --global-settings

 Usage example:

 C:\>"%plesk_bin%\mchk" --all
