[Samba] How do you join a Linux mailserver to a Samba domain?

thx, Bob . . .

The e-mail problems appears to be a permissions and summary file issue.

I gave the users Administrative permissions, and everything worked 
perfectly.  Then I compacted the folders and rebuilt the summary files, 
took away Administrator permissions, and everything STILL works perfectly.

When I posted the question, I wondered if there was some step in joining 
the mailserver I'd missed.

I'm told when Microsoft Exchange is installed, it adds entries to Active 
Directory, and I wondered about alternative mailservers.  I see no place 
in the ADUC MMC to identify the SOGo/Dovecot mailserver.

The same server functions as the Samba AD DC, and alternatively, I 
wondered if I should use a Windows Server as a Domain Controller 
pointing back to Samba AD DC  Would that identify my mailserver?

I also don't understand why the ADUC MMC failed to created a "new" user.
