EUQ_(servername) account

What is this account for?  I know Exchange creates during the initial install, but is it needed, and if so what is it used for?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Never seen it before but by any chance have you got Trend on there?

Sounds like this:

"Can the administrator change the password for the EUQ_ account?

Problem:   When installing End User Quarantine (EUQ), it creates a user account and mailbox called EUQ_<servername> to perform its functions. The password for this account is automatically set by the installation and is unknown. For security reasons, the administrator likes to change the password.
Solution:  Yes, the administrator can change the password because EUQ uses the "System" account to log in to this mailbox. As long as the "System" account has full mailbox access, there should be no issue."

Ahhh.  Thank you.  I actaully meant Trend (not Exchange), so good catch!  I'm assuming then this account can be disabled if only mailbox access is needed then.  Thanks for the response.
