I'm not quite sure, if it is possible to change the default mail-server aliases for Incoming/Outgoing mail on Plesk 10.4 ?

By default, Plesk Panel uses imap.domain.tld / pop.domain.tld and smtp.domain.tld since Plesk 7+.

It seems not to be possible to setup changes in the panel.

I've successfully completed several migrations for some old hosts from Plesk 7 to 10.4, but some customers don't want to edit their Outlook preferences (they still use mail.domain.tld) ...

This is a guess, the documentation doesn't really cover this in much detail. It looks like there is a DNS template that gets applied to all tenants. It seems like you would want to update the template and/or create a new one that uses the DNS names you want when a tenant is created.

Regardless the imap.domain.tld/pop/smtp format has become pretty standard these days and makes things a lot cleaner, especially if you ever end up using multiple boxes to handle each function.

DNS template would impact all customers on the server. If one or few customers needs additional aliasing, their individual DNS zone could be edited. – Sergey L Jul 3 '12 at 20:18
