    Does anyone happen to know how to correspond the logwatch UID with an actual user? I've been looking around and haven't figured it out yet.

    Thanks.

    Go on, have a guess
    It's the respective account owner in /etc/passwd, so:

    grep UID /etc/passwd and the account name is the first field.

    Okay, that makes sense now that I look at it. I've just never been too clear on where the UIDs came from or how they were assigned (still a little unclear on the latter, frankly). Thanks.
