Glad it will help.  I use Drop folders with Windows, Mac and Linux.  You
should be aware that there seems to be a bug with the Samba implementation on
OSX that drop folders do not work.  They work fine from OSX with AFP over TCP
but not with SMB...wierd.  I have found no solution for that.  But the SMB
drop folders work fine with Windows and with Linux.  So unfortunately I still
keep Netatalk around to allow OSX to drop.

Good luck.
