Mailman is a feature or you can say attribute of cPanel control panel, or WHM, that allows you to create mailing lists so that you can send large number of E-mails from your virtual private server or dedicated server. While this feature is useful to contact with people whom you work on your server or websites, but the downside of this feature is; it uses system resources and can slow down the server if you cross the limitations. However, you can easily disable Mailman through your cPanel WHM.
