Hm, "unix extensions = no" doesn't really work. Maybe I do something wrong?
The main problem ist that I habe three Samba Users on the Server. And if 
userA creates a file, which has the rights rw-r--r-- userB can't edit 
this file, but he should be able to do. Thats my problem. So I need e.g. 
that new files automatically get the rights I set in my smb.conf. And 
that's not the case if I mount the share.
