    No one uses them and this is just eating up ram.

    How can I still able?

    Thanks in advance.

    If you have disabled the MailMan option in WHM under Server Configuration >> Tweak Settings >> Mail section, you probably need to delete Mailman's cron job which is installed and will keep running by default.

    SSH into your account and issue:

    crontab -u mailman -l

    It probably will return a whole list of routines that are automatically run.

    To delete mailman's cron jobs, issue:

    crontab -u mailman -r

    To verify they are removed, you can reissue "crontab -u mailman -l" and it should return "no crontab for mailman"

    I would then restart crond by issuing "/etc/init.d/crond restart"

    Note that certain cPanel updates often re-install this cron job, so if you see it running again either through top (or in /var/log/cron), you'll need to follow this procedure again.

    Hope this helps -
