    Hello :)

    Yes, you could use the commands listed in the previous post, or commands such as:

    Code:
    /scripts/restartsrv_dovecot --status
    /scripts/restartsrv_exim --status
    Thank you.

    Does that mean they're still running? how come?

    I disable them in service manager and did a reboot, why is it still showing up? ty.

    If you want to disable the mail server completely, then select "Disabled" in:

    "WHM Home » Service Configuration » Mailserver Selection"

    Thank you.
