Hmm... maybe on some flavors of *nix, but on my server, if there is
no shell set for a user, you can't sudo or su to that user ID. At
least not while I am logged in under my account.
I just tried it to confirm, I also tried it while running as root
with the same result "This account is currently not available."
I'm running an RHEL 5 box.
As I stated in my earlier reply, I do have my account set up as part
of the mailman group. I can run mailman scripts with no problem
without having to sudo to anything else.
