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
this, DOMA needs to trust DOMB so that the users in DOMB can access their
mail in the DOMA Exchange server? Am I right? And would this work?
