Postmaster account security permissions

Hello,

The postmaster account used for Exchange 2003 has been accidentally deleted in Active Directory. I am trying to recreate it, but I want to know the security permissions it requires (i.e. member of which default security groups)

Thanks

There is no special postmaster account in Exchange 2003.
The postmaster@ mailbox is usually applied to the account that was used to install Exchange. Therefore it is often on the Administrator account. You can also create another account to hold the address. No special permissions or anything like that required. It doesn't do anything, other than be the account that is shown when a message (NDR) comes form postmaster.
