    Hello,

    I see that I can choose in cPanel between ProFTPD and Pure-FTPD. I'd like to use SFTP instead though. If I disabled the FTP server, is there any way to have SFTP show up in cPanel like the FTP servers do?

    I would also like to know if I can remove mailman or if cPanel needs this service in order to run correctly. Is there a way to disable mailman and if so, are there any negative effects I might run into by disabling it? Thanks!
