How can I delete your own Unix account ?
Posted on 1998-02-06
I hope this is not a foolish question. I have a Unix (shell) account from college to read my e-mail. I'm leaving the college and would like my account deleted. The system administrator is too busy and doesn't respond to my e-mails for the account to be deleted. Now my question is, since I have rights (protection) to my own account and directory, can I delete the account myself, without having root access?
Again, I don't know if this is a challenging question or a foolish question, but any help would be greatly appreciated.
