My Server showed very high CPU usage. The "Daily Process Log" in WHM show that "dovecot/lmtp" process from a cpanel account as the top process consuming almost 50% CPU resources.

is it possible to disable this "dovecot/lmtp" proccess/service for just certain one cpanel account? because this one account doesn't need email services at all.
Thank you.

Hey there! There isn't a way to turn off the dovecot service for a certain domain, but how about these API calls here?


That will suspend the mail for a specific address, so you may need to apply that to multiple email addresses.

Hi! thank you for your suggestion, I found that this process are from firewall and crontab notification. I go with the solution disabling some unnecessary notification and dovecot/lmtp cpu process decreasing as I expected.
Thank you!
