I am by no means an expert, but I believe you can achieve both NT
authentication AND outlook compatibility.

The first would be done using:   smbclient -j [+options]
This would allow you to connect to a domain server.

The second is said to be possible using Evolution and Ximian Connector
I have not used connector, as we are a Notes shop.

Best of luck!

Hi all,

I have SuSE 7.3 running on my laptop for a couple of months now and shifted
mailing, addressbooks  and most of the other stuff from win to linux.

Now I'm working on a site in ireland with only win-nt computers connected
with roaming profiles to servers in germany :(
I was wondering if Samba can be used to connect to such a win-nt network
transfer the files I need to transfer.
Is the ftp-like samba client the only possibility and how to do this, if
IP-address is being changed all the time I logon because of a
What about encryption of passwords, since I don't have any rights to change
something on the win-nt server side (I've read something in the doc about
switching off encryption on the windows side - at least for win98 clients
in the
standard config, where samba is used as a server)
Is there a possiblity to connect to a microsoft exchange server to fetch my
emails, rather than converting MS outlook pst-files after a couple of
to mbox-files?
