Restoring Mail Configuration

Sometimes, Plesk mail server configuration becomes corrupt and it is necessary to restore it. The restoration is carried out by internal mchk utility, intended for use by Plesk Control Panel. However, as administrator, you can use it for restoring the Qmail and Courier-imap configuration when needed.

By default mchk is running 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, as it requires running Perl interpreter. To speed up restoring use the --without-spam option.
