Has my server been compromised? What messures do you take when your server has been compromised without shuttin down all your sites...or changing every password? I am beginning to loose faith in Cpanel with all the attacks my server keeps getting.

No, this is not a sign of a server being compromised. This error message means that mailman is not in a good working condition.

The best measure is to request a OS reload from your host, and then secure your server.

The cPanel is a control panel and has nothing to do with the security of your server.
