Deleting an account involves reversing the steps carried out when the account was created. It is a destructive process and whenever something destructive is performed, care must always be taken. The steps that might be carried out include:
• disabling the account
• backing up and removing the associated files
• setting up mail forwards
Situations under which you may wish to remove an account include:
• as punishment for a user who has broken the rules
In this situation, you may only want to disable the account rather than remove it completely.
• an employee has left
