    Hi guys,

    I was checking over our maillog, and it seems like cpanel@localhost is connecting multiple times a second recently, here's a exert from our maillog:

    Code:

    centOS - WHM/cPanel ver: 11.32.2 build 18

    Granted this isn't a big deal, other than heavily populating our mail log, which makes it harder to see if anything is going wrong -- is there any way to fix this, or this As designed?

    There is nothing harmful in this. You can simply ignore.

    Actually, it is cPanel service monitor for IMAP. It will pass login information to your email services like Exim, Courier, etc.
