  • Plesk 9.2 for Windows


Plesk Management Service crashes and mail queues are stopped for processing. In the Windows Event viewer, it is possible to find the following errors:

Event Type: Error

Event Category: None
Event ID: 1
Date: 12/17/2009
Time: 12:37:25 PM
User: N/A

The system cannot find the file specified. (Error code 2) at Unable to connect to pipe \\.\pipe\psamailfilterpipe

at Mail Enable mail global filter(CPleskMEMTA::Execute line 141)
Execute file name: D:\Program Files (x86)\Parallels\Plesk\Mail Servers\Mail Enable\Bin\MEMTA.EXE


1. Stop the Plesk Management Service (it is better to use the Plesk Service Monitor tool for this purpose).

2. It is necessary to replace the %plesk_bin%\plesksrv.exe file with the attachment. See the article about the hotfix installation procedure.

3. Start the Plesk Management Service.
