under which account it is done?
ie. Administrator vs Standard User account.

In some cases yes but i would be more inclined to think that it could be done in both, but i would use the admin account.
If I have replied to a topic and you reply and I haven't gotten back to you within 48 hours (2 days) then send me a P.M.

If the user account has Admin privileges...no difference.

Not all user accounts have such, depends on how you set the account up (limited user versus user with Admin privileges).
