    Hi there, I've noted that in the CPU/Memory/MySQL Usage page at WHM there is a daily recurrent entry about a user 32003 using webmaild:

    User Domain %CPU %MEM MySQL Processes
    32003 0.02 0.04 0.0
    Top Process %CPU 2.0 webmaild - serving 200.127.63.6
    Top Process %CPU 1.0 webmaild - serving 200.127.63.6
    Top Process %CPU 0.5 webmaild - serving 200.127.63.6

    Generally, the different logged IPs belongs to local ISPs.
    Is this an issue to be worried about?

    Thanks in advance

    It greps the password file for the user ID and prints the corresponding line which shows you the username, which happens to be cpanel-phpmyadmin.

    oh ok, I didn't understood cause at first look, all the three lines seemed to be an entire command. I should readed better before I post. :)

    The result for that command in my shell bring the following:

    Code:
    cpanel-horde:x:32003:32005::/var/cpanel/userhomes/cpanel-horde:/usr/local/cpanel/bin/noshell
    so that user activity is due to webmail activity.
    All clear, all right now.
    Thanks ;)
