I actually pointed him at 'samba-tool user add --help' and when I 
replied to the list I inadvertently sent an email to him as well and 
just got this:

Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently: 
wynkoop+samba at wynn.com Technical details of permanent failure: Google 
tried to deliver your message, but it was rejected by the server for the 
recipient domain wynn.com by wa3yre.wynn.com. []. The error 
that the other server returned was: 554 5.7.1 Mail (42499-06917) appears 
to be unsolicited - resend the mail with 622ARANDOM appended to the 
subject and contact postmaster at wynn.com for resolution

So the OP wants help but only on his terms.
