Then remove 'map to guest = Bad User' from [global] and make 
'AXIARListen' look like this:

       comment = Axiar Listen directory Retrieval
       path = /AXIAR/listen
       read only = no
       create mask = 0770

It would, if you create users correctly, which brings us to 'unix 
password sync = no', change the 'no' to 'yes' and create Unix users and 
then make them Samba users with 'smbpasswd -a username' run by root or 
with sudo.

Yes, I supposed that they were Unix users.

on a standalone server another name for 'domain' is 'workgroup' so you 
need to be entering 'STA' here

Hard luck, they need to be Unix & Samba users that match your Windows 

Two final thoughts, your email client is terrible and if you reply to
