Subscription problem

  Asked By: Gustavo    Date: Aug 25    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 775

I have a subscription problem!
One of the user accounts has been deleted as the user is no longer here.
The user's subscriptions were not cancelled before the account was deleted.
The subscriptions are still being sent to the account, but as the account is
not there they are being sent to the system administrator with a message
'message did not reach recipient. The recipient name is not recognized'
How do I cancel the subscriptions for this user?
