Webmin help


When our network was installed with our mail server being webmin/linux, all of our email users were set up with User ID's.

Now I would like to change their user ID's to match their employee ID with a '1' on the front end. That is to say an employee id of 555 would become a user id of 1555.

Is this user id field 4 spaces long, and can I change user id's and not user names without messing things up.

ps.. The reason for adding the 1 is so that there is no way a user id will be the same as a 'system' user id.

Thanks for your help..


Alan
