IdealX tools is for manage users in ldap tree, not in passwd.
Normally , the data of users in LDAP contain necessary attribute for unix 
You can use pam_ldap & nss_ldap pour unix auth from LDAP.

For mail box, you must create one manually or modify the smbldap-useradd 
script !

[Samba] smbldap-useradd question

I have Samba 3 setup to work with LDAP and I am using the IdealX tools 
to create new users. If I issue the command /./smbldap-useradd -m -a -c 
"User Name" username/, then my new user is added, but I do not see the 
user in //etc/passwd/ and there is no entry in //var/mail/. Do I need to 
create a Unix account for this user also? They already have a /home 
directory. If I want a mail box for the user, could I just create one
