[Samba] Locking setting ?

I just installed Samba on a RedHat 7.2 (is supposed to replace a Win2K 
server), but I'm having some problems with files on the Samba share. 

When running Win2K Server it was possible to have e.g. MS Outlook personal 
folders on a network-drive - no problems.
But if I try to do the same with a Samba share I have huge problems: When 
trying to create a new message, the nmessage is not visible - and when 
exiting the program, it tells me I still have messages in the outbox - even 
though Outlook doesn't show anything. 

I suspect it has something to do with the file-locking mechanism on the 
Samba - but I'm not sure. 

Does anyone have any idea's on how I can get this to work on Samba ?
