Look at 'winbind use default domain = yes', to get your e-mail addresses
'sane' (not with domain\ on the front).

More particularly, look at the patches here:

This uses winbind directly and Samba's NTLMSSP implementation.  This is
more robust than the original cyrus code.

Currently Davenport supports NTLM, but not via ntlm_auth, but given
their good internal design, it would be trivial to patch.  (Just not
enough hours in the day yet).
