    Those processes utilizing large amounts of memory may be indicative of another issue. I recommend letting our technical analysts assist you with resolving these issues: http://tickets.cPanel.net/submit

    Those are your IMAP and POP3 services. If you don't want your users to receive mail, you can disable Courier in WHM >> Service Configuration >> Mailserver Configuration.

    You can also replace Courier with Dovecot, which tends to have a lower memory footprint overall.

    I would agree on the 'dovecot' suggestion if you are dealing with a 'vps' account
    instead of an actual real dedicated server.

    Those tend to have limited resources and 'dovecot' won't consume as
    much memory which should work better for you in that situation.
