    Anybody have any suggestions on how to do this? A single process is taking the server loads through the roof.

    agreed - it crashed my box .. anything that crashes a box should NOT be in ANY control panel. If I were cpanel, I'd remove this from Cpanel ASAP

    Can you trace the process to figure out what is going on with it ?

    strace -p &pid&

    Or use the process manager in WHM

    I'm kinda stumped as to how it could crash your box .. are you running on an old kernel without OOM?

    no, the kernel was upgraded just two weeks ago.

    The server load went so high everything stopped responding and I had to emergency page the datacenter and have them reboot. It was 1.12 Cpu usage from 1 person using OpenMail.pl

    How do I remove it or disable it from Cpanel?

    Just tracked one down

    I used strace as you suggested and here's what I got:

    read(6, &&sc85f5ef.084@chemail.che.umn.ed&..., 218) = 218
    lseek(6, 15611, SEEK_SET) = 15611
    read(6, &&145.a793987.29b50012@aol.com&10&..., 159) = 159
    lseek(6, 62997, SEEK_SET) = 62997
    read(6, &&009901c1d3bf$4085a840$6501a8c0@&..., 272) = 272
    lseek(6, 100599, SEEK_SET) = 100599
    read(6, &&F21QIWDO3hRDT6Z3Lst00022c59@hot&..., 165) = 165
    lseek(6, 169114, SEEK_SET) = 169114
    read(6, &&NEBBJGHIIMIMMPNCMGKNEENOCDAA.ew&..., 252) = 252
    lseek(6, 104796, SEEK_SET) = 104796
    read(6, &&E16oeRa-00 81630


    But that wasn't it - that went on forever. Before the process started the server load was at about .6, after 35 seconds, the server load was at 5.0, after a minute the server load was at 9 and rising.

    So, my question: how do we turn this thing off?
