Who Uses OXtender?
4PSA recommends OXtender to service providers who want to offer their customer a complete email groupware and collaboration solution. Introduced in 2010, OXtender is the result of the collaboration between 4PSA and Open-Xchange.
It is recommended that you install Open-Xchange on a new dedicated or virtual server, especially if you have more than one Plesk server. However, if you only have one Plesk server and you do not anticipate any growth, technically it is possible to have Open-Xchange installed on the same machine. 4PSA can help you install and deploy the Open-Xchange resources you need to sustain any infrastructure.
Open-Xchange does not change the Plesk email server, yet adds its functionality to the existing infrastructure. This means that your customers will need to login to the Open-Xchange web interface instead of the old webmail. The entire process will remain transparent and will bring no changes in the email server settings or current flows.
When you install the OXtender module in Parallels Plesk Panel, you must first configure the connection to the Open-Xchange server. Once the connection is set up, you will be able to provision your Open-Xchange customers with a click, depending on the level of service the customer wants. The interface integrated in Parallels Plesk Panel also provides usage reports for billing purposes.
OXtender for Plesk can be used in any hosting environment as long as there is a centralized administration authority managing all hosting servers. For more details,
please check the FAQ.
The Advantages of Using OXtender

Each Parallels Plesk Panel server can support email groupware and collaboration setup in less than 5 minutes.
Advanced Webmail for Free
All email accounts will benefit from a free-of-charge full-featured webmail, including personal address book, calendar, and tasks. By using OXtender, Horde application becomes obsolete; therefore, you can replace it.

Functionality can be adjusted from the Parallels Plesk Panel web interface with one click of the mouse.
New Reselling Opportunities
