    We are using Google Apps to send/receive emails. Is it safe to disable dovecot service? Will WHM/cPanel still be able to send email notifications to admin?

    Dovecot and Courier only provide IMAP and POP services. Neither of these are used for sending email. You should be able to disable Dovecot for your particular needs.
