    Go on, have a guess
    Those stats in WHM are relatively meaningless, you need to really watch your server performance within shell.

    You can try and find that script with:

    locate mail.cgi

    So long as you have slocate up and running. You could also look in the ps output for the script and use lsof to find out where the script is excecuting from. Alternatively, search your home partition for it:

    find /home/*/public_html/ -name mail.cgi
