How to Setup Email Accounts in our Environment
Our servers use the Plesk Control Panel to manage the web, mail, ftp, and database server settings on your server. Because of this any changes made in Plesk are retained, and any changes made in the underlying programs can be reverted when nightly Plesk scheduled tasks are run. For these reasons, if you want to create or modify a mail account, you must do so using your Control Panel. We currently run two versions of Plesk on our servers. If you are not sure if Plesk 9.x or 11.x is on your server, see 
How to Determine which Version of Plesk Control Panel is Installed on a Server.
