Chek the spam folder…

I’m going to second @jtittle about using SSH keys - would be a lot more secure than it going via email, and too you don’t have to wait for anything, assign your key, ssh in, setup an account without key and assign whatever password you like.


Have you checked your SPAM/Junk folder(s)? Also, are you using SSH Keys, or no? If using SSH Keys, you won’t receive a root password.
