Hi David

Really this problem only pass with files created by thunderbird. This
program creates a .tmp files during syncronization with imap accounts and
generates most biggest files. I can't filter this folder and Im not
interested to make this user by user, y prefer to make this for all samba

Do you know any good link explaining how to create policie filters in XP?

And finally the tmp folder is not sync.

Thanks :-)
