    Old Work E-mail Account Still Open

    Hey guys,

    Just tried to request a new password for a website which I registered for using my old work e-mail account. When I say old work email i mean i left the old place 6 months ago as Network Manager and moved to another school. As I was Network Manager at the old place my e-mail account was a full admin for the domain as well as other things.

    So I request the password and realise it has gone to the old account. So I try to login on the off chance (not expecting to to work) and it lets me in with all the same admin rights I used to have.

    Not very secure and the new NM hasn't done a good job there!!

    Do I notify the school or say nothing - if i let them know can it come back on my because I logged in?

    I'd let them know ASAP. Phone your old HT now. Wake him from bed if you have to.

    You've probably just broken the computer misuse act even though they used to be your credentials.

    Just drop them an email to say what happened?
