[Samba] Outlook/Express Crawling with Domains

Yeah I've had that. It's linked with your other problem with Messenger.
Outlook is trying to get your MSN contact list when it's sat there with its
splash screen up, but since Messenger wont start, it can't. Hence it sits
there for a bit, until it decides MSN isn't going to play.

No. This is a problem with recent versions of Messenger. It'll only let
admin or local users use it. Version 4.5 does not have this problem, and if
you downgrade, start using it, and then upgrade it again, I believe it
doesn't do it again.

If it's not that, then make sure you've not got any policies set that
disable MSN for domain users.

Hope this helps!
