I dont think there is anything you can do then other than leave it dormant for it to be autodeleted within a year.

Hi @Delete account,

Actually you can! Just switch to an actual email address, you are using now. On "General" tab in "Personal account" settings find the line "Personal email" and change to the your current email (one you have access to). Next, you can do whatever you want, including delete it.

Hope this helps.

It actually sounds like they don't have access to the Dropbox account either, and can't reset the password as they don't have access to the email address associated with it.
