I'm just going to flame you for top posting, but you should still be slightly 
numb from the last flaming. If you want your post at the top, delete the rest 
of the message.

Your mount should work, but you should test it thoroughly using sudo as 
different users and trying to read and write to the share. Then look at the 
directory from the windows machine and make sure your changes are there.

You will have to forgive the developers if they are sometimes short, but it 
takes a lot of time to support a full linux distribution, and they usually are 
here during their "free" time after a long day of work and then coming home to 
the demands from the "other bosses".

MailScanner is like deodorant...
You hope everybody uses it, and
you notice quickly if they don't!!!!
