Those settings are the defaults defined in Mailman/Defaults.py

If you want to change them, you redefine them in Mailman/mm_cfg.py and
your redefinition will override the default. See

So, for example, to change the port to 587, you just need to add


to Mailman/mm_cfg.py.

Mailman upgrades never overwrite mm_cfg.py. What Plesk does in a Plesk
update is a Plesk question that I can't answer. A Plesk update SHOULD
not overwrite mm_cfg.py, but I can't say that it will or wont.
