    Hi, I know this is an old thread but I have the exact same issue. How can it be normal for a mailman process to run for (in the OP's case) 179 hours?

    After reading https://documentation.cpanel.net/display/ALD/Mailman+FAQ and learning that mailman is just for processing mailing lists I decided to simply kill the processes and disable it. The unusual activity only started a couple of days ago for me, and I expect it was some kind of exploit. Either way, problem solved. :)

    It's acceptable to disable MailMan if you do not utilize mailing lists on your server. It's actually normal to see those processes when MailMan is enabled, so I don't believe it was an exploit:

    Thank you.

    Hi i am have started having this problem, i thought mailman was for emails not mail list.

    In tweak settings i see these options below do i turn them all off ?

    Include mailman in disk usage calculations
    On
    default Off
    Count mailman deliveries towards a domain’s Max hourly emails. [?]
    On Off
    default
    Restrict outgoing SMTP to root, exim, and mailman (FKA SMTP Tweak) [?]
    On
    default Off
    Enable Mailman mailing lists
    On
    default Off
    Prefix “mail.” onto Mailman URLs [?]

    This will only disable Mailman, which is utilized for mailing lists.

    Thank you.
