Here is a shell script that will iterate through all your Plesk domains to quickly add email addresses in bulk without going through each domain’s settings yourself.
This specific script adds a webmaster email address with standard aliases like postmaster@ and abuse@, but without an actual mailbox. The messages are forwarded to an address at another domain name. It will also enable the antivirus scanning.
When an address already exists it writes an error and continues to the next domain.
You can run the code manually to process all of your existing domains, but with the instructions below you can also have it executed each time a new domain is added to Plesk Onyx.
#!/bin/bash if [ $NEW_DOMAIN_NAME ]; then domains=$NEW_DOMAIN_NAME else query="SELECT name FROM domains WHERE parentDomainId=0;" domains=$(plesk db -Ne "$query") fi count=$(echo $domains | wc -w) i=0 echo -e "\e[33mAdding webmaster emails to \e[1m$count\e[0m\e[33m domains\e[0m" echo for domain in $domains; do i=$(expr $i + 1) echo -n "$i/$count - " plesk bin mail \ --create webmaster@$domain \ -mailbox false \ -aliases add:abuse,hostmaster,postmaster,mail,mailer-daemon,sysadmin \ -forwarding true \ -forwarding-addresses add:firstname.lastname@example.org \ -antivirus inout \ -cp-access false done
Make sure to change
email@example.com to your real destination.
