Note: In July 2019, Windows Dedicated Servers by default will have MailEnable Standard installed. Windows Dedicated Servers prior to July 2019 will have SmarterMail. If your Windows Dedicated Server has SmarterMail, it is possible to create email accounts directly within SmarterMail. Please note that all email accounts should be created within Plesk for proper synchronization of settings. Any email accounts created outside of Plesk may not be supported by our Windows Administration.
