I thing it makes Life easyer when you change the Group Owner to "Domain
Admins" and set the "s"-Bit and the Permissions to 770 on the userx/ Directorys.
So every "Domain Admin" can write files on the directorys.

Try this (or do this on a higher Directory Level):

drwxrws-- 16 user1     Domain Admins     4096 2005-01-21       user1/

Hope it helps.
