    Hi All,

    on my VPS, I've disabled mailserver in WHM, also disabled exim, imap, mailma, etc.

    Still, ps shows
    dovecot 18243 0.0 0.3 4792 1840 ? S 20:28 0:00 pop3-login
    dovecot 18244 0.0 0.3 4792 1840 ? S 20:28 0:00 pop3-login
    dovecot 18245 0.0 0.3 4796 1840 ? S 20:28 0:00 imap-login
    dovecot 18246 0.0 0.3 4796 1840 ? S 20:28 0:00 imap-login
    root 18201 0.0 0.1 1796 588 ? Ss 20:28 0:00 /usr/sbin/dovecot
    root 18203 0.0 0.1 2236 880 ? S 20:28 0:00 dovecot-auth

    How can I get rid of them?

    I've rebooted the system just in case, no help, those are still up.

    Does cpanel need them for something even if I disable all mail on the box?

    P.S. Also, do I need any of those to send mail from php, which is using sendmail in php.ini, and does cpanel need any of it itself to send me notifications from root?

    Howdy,

    I don't have all of my tools but I'd check out:

    /scripts/setupmailserver

    via ssh. Last I recall it had a disable mode where you can shut imap and pop3 out.

    Thanks!

    Thanks!

    I've figured it out, it was dovecote that was bringing them up. After disabling it all is fine.
