Does the admin account allow ssh to the PerfectMail server?
On installation PerfectMail will create an "admin" user account to match the web access account. This allows you to login to the PerfectMail Linux console.
As a security consideration the default configuration is to not allow SSH access via the admin account. This task is left for your Linux administrator to perform, if necessary. A qualified Linux administrator should be able to easily perform this task.
In general, Linux administration is not needed; in fact it is discouraged. Updating the configuration of your PerfectMail server may render it non-functional. If you do need to make changes to the Linux release hosting PerfectMail, you do so at your own risk. Make sure you have full backups and plan to recover in case there is an issue.
