Thanks all for responding, it seems my digest samba mail had a virus, so I 
did not get to read all the reply (I am sure there were many ;-) )

	Okay, I hope nobody minds me asking a few question ...

	I have DOMA, which is an NT4 domain with Exchange 5.5, DOMB is my little 
Linux server with Samba 2.2.x ( hoping to use 2.2.5 ).  If I understand

mail in the DOMA Exchange server?  Am I right? And would this work?
