- Linux/BSD distribution name and version: Debian

Hello folks, this should be a simple questions for the pros.

I have access to login to IredAdmin with postmaster, and have a second user also promoted to global admin, this works in the GUI.

Which credendtials must I use to SSH though, I tried both accounts a above i.e. postmaster@hostname (for mail server). SSH works but I get bad credentials even with those that work in IredAdmin.

Please help, probably missing something obvious.


I managed to find some old SSH keys, which got me in, then I could SU to root and reset passwords accordingly.

Seems to me like in my case the userson the OS and the IreMail ones do not sync passwords for some reason.
