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.
