I don't mean to be difficult, but, if I read the smb.conf man page correctly, this means that all jobs printed through Samba to CUPS will be held indefinitely.  This is not the behavior I'm looking for - I need users to be able to choose for jobs to be held, otherwise they need to be printed immediately.  If I indicated elsewhere that I was looking for this all of the time, I apologize for the confusion.  Right now, we use the "hold" feature of our Canon-based copiers for folks who need to print out sensitive documents - e.g. personnel reviews - so that they have a place to print it to that is password protected and so that it's not sitting on the printer.  Most of the printing we do does not fall under that heading, so having it print immediately is desirable.
