Ok, I found out that ddclient was still running, even though the service
was dead in systemd. I tested it by going to /etc/ddclient.conf and
changing the time check to 3600 sec, and then it turned out that the
next system mail I got was an hour later.

So then I did what you suggested and checked the processes, and this is
what I found out:
# ps ax | grep ddclient
3954 pts/0 S+ 0:00 grep --color=auto ddclient
28634 ? S 0:04 ddclient - sleeping for 3460 second
28684 ? S 0:04 ddclient - sleeping for 3460 second

It was counting down the 1 hour timer that I set in the configuration
file and running it.

So, I killed the processes, and it is stopped.

But the question I have is, when the service is stopped in systemd,
should the process not be stopped also? I did not expect to have to go
and kill the process. Should I file a bug report? Or is this normal
behavior?

Thanks for your help.
