Check the /etc/aliases file for a line redirecting "info" to "root" (something like:  info:   \root)

Delete or comment out (put a '#' in front of the line), then issue the "newaliases" command to rebuild the aliases database.

Search the /var/log/mail file for posible references to the "info" account (grep info /var/log/mail)
