Restoring Mail Configuration

Sometimes, the Plesk's mail server configuration can become corrupt, for example, after Plesk upgrade, and it is necessary to restore it. The restoration is carried out by the internal mchk utility, which is intended for usage by Plesk. However, as the administrator, you can use it for repairing the mail server configuration.

By default, mchk runs in the background mode. To execute it in the foreground, use the -v option. For example:

/usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/mchk -v

Note: You may not wish to restore SpamAssassin settings for mail accounts, because it requires Perl interpreter to be run. To speed up the restore process, use the --without-spam option.
