Thanks Geoff - from what I have learned from the Hula group your spot

Feedback from the Hula group suggests they are going to change the user
store to use LDAP (I think OPENLDAP) and therefore will eventually
support SAMBA this way.

It's probably going to be an easier job to use Open-xchange.  I have
some prliminary work on integrating Samba 3.0.10 and OX 0.7.5.  this is
documented on the OX wiki.  Most of the Doc is copied and pasted from
work but adapted for Debian.  It hasn't been updated for the OX 0.8beta4
release or for Samba 3.0.11 but the basics are there to create a Win2K
replacement.  (I'm just waiting for a more stable release of Oxlook to
outlook with OX)
