Service Account vs. System Account

Service Account vs. System Account

Does anyone know the advantages of using a service account to run the SQL
Services (MSSQL Server and SQL Executive) vs. running under the Local System
Account.

The Service Account would have Domain Admin privileges.

Thanks in advance,
Michael

Michael,

 It's easier to get SQL Mail and network backups working if SQL is
running under a user account.
