    Hello!

    I apologize if this is a FAQ or exists somewhere else, but I couldn't find any answers. Can anyone tell me (or point me to a reference) what the standard email accounts that are used on servers would be?

    For example, some that I know of are:
    postmaster@...
    webmaster@...
    mailer-daemon@...
    abuse@...

    But I'd love a list of "standard" accounts just for reference.

    Thanks!

    Only postmaster@ and abuse@ are required by RFCs. hostmaster and webmaster are commonly used. But look in /etc/aliases file for some other conventional ones, e.g:

    admin
    system
    sysadm
    manager
    abuse
    newsadm
    usenet
    ftpadm
    www
    webmaster
    noc
    security
    hostmaster
    info
    marketing
    sales
