please don't send me (or the list) html mail...

yes you are currently authenticating against smbpasswd - i thought you
don't want that...

if you don't want to use smbpasswd you have to use some other backend.
you might be able to use passthru auth (password server =)
I've never used that I don't know how it works.

Since you have all your users on the unix machine you could use security
=domain to do the authentication.
