The "My Account" (Web Services) website makes it easy to manage features of your engineering account. Here, users can edit spam whitelist and blacklist, activate new EGR NetIds over the web from anywhere and change their passwords as well as their Unix shell. Other features included are: viewing quota usage, controlling the spam filter and setting e-mail forwarding and e-mail auto responder.
Over the past year, all processes involved in the creation and management of engineering user accounts have been put to the test repeatedly since early conception and development. Accounts and all their resources are more tightly coupled with an individual account. Account owners have an increase in information pertaining to their account, such as easier management and tracking of their resource usage and overall management of the account. Migration to the new system provides a faster response for users, better syncing and management of accounts, and more account information available to the user.
