Accounts needed by Zimbra

Postby DonMarsala » Fri Apr 03, 2020 1:07 am

Hi,
Sorry if this is too basic but I can't seem to find information on this and System Account is too common to search here.
What system accounts are created and required by Zimbra?

Thanks

On my Ubuntu system, the Zimbra installation script created two users and three groups

Code: Select all

Users:

zimbra
postfix

Groups:

zimbra
postfix
postdrop

Hi,
Thanks. We are also on Ubuntu. I am looking at mine through the Zimbra admin gui. In there there are 2 accounts for spam and av which I know the system made. But there are also others like contacts, rrc and some others. We have been using Zimbra a long time and these may just be leftover from something. I just want to be sure I'm not deleting a system account.
