Default Where is the user password saved

I looked at the database and saw that the old accounts don't have a password in the password field. Still it is saved somewhere as using a wrong password does'nt work.

The new accounts do have tha password saved in the database. It looks like ISPConfig saves some kind of HASH value.
The odd thin is that I used the same password with several email accounts and in the database they all have a different value! Is that normal?

Another thin is that I can log in to the old accounts trhat have the password stored somewhere else but to none of the new ones stored the password in the database!

Any ideas?
Thanks!

All mail-users are system users and the password is stored in a system dependant way ( in /etc/shadow on most *nix systems). This makes it easy for pop/imap/smtp/ftp servers to authenticate the users.
