Subject: BOUNCE vox@lists.lugod.org:    Non-member submission from [Eric
    Engelhard <ekengelhard@sagresdiscovery.com>]   

My new workplace is windows dominated. I just set up a couple of samba
servers. I have no problem logging on to each samba server from my Linux
boxes (using smbclient), but when I try to do so from either a Win98 or
Win2000 box I get a dialog box requesting a network password. I have
username and passwords matched on both Linux and windows accounts, but
none of the passwords I enter seem to function.

1. Am I missing something obvious?
2. How does windows verify its own sharing passwords?

As an aside, I have to support Outlook and am faced with either A)
running and Exchange server, or B) running OpenMail. Anyone had success
with the latter?
