My RIT account should have been deleted by now. The ICS Helpdesk told me that accounts last two quarters after you were last registered for classes. Let’s see … I took my last class at RIT in the Spring 2002 quarter, we have since seen the Summer and Fall quarters come and go … yet my web page is still up, and my RIT email address still functions.
It’s the email that really chaps my ass. I’ve told everyone I care about that I changed my address and I’ve changed my address for all the subscriptions I care about. Yet, on the chance that I forgot someone or something important, I check my RIT email every day. And I check it with webmail, which is slow as hell. If the address were inactive, at least someone would get an error message if they sent a message to it. As it is now, the message will be received successfully, and if I don’t check, it will go unread. The hypothetical sender would have no conclusion to reach other than that I am a thoughless prick.
So I check webmail every day.
