Hello, I have a lot of these lines when i use htop to see all the processes: smtpd -n smtp -t inet -u -o stress= In total 33. What is this and what can i do with it. Or can i disable it. (Im not running a business)

These might be threads of one process.
It is probably postfix (http://www.postfix.org/smtpd.8.html). You shouldn't disable it if you want to send/receive mail from/to your droplet.
thank you for the feedback !
