Thanks for the info. 

Even though I've got 3 Linux servers currently authenticating against 
AD, I'm still a little fuzzy about how the whole process works.  Anyway, 
tell me a little bit about how my life would be easier w/o AD -- I'm 
seriously considering going that way.

Regarding email, what I really want is this:  When a user connects to 
the mail server, all mail from the server is synchronized to their local 
machine.  When a user deletes an email, whether from their server-side 
folders or from their local folders, that also gets synchronized.  When 
a user connects to the mail server from a different mail client, the 
same thing happens.

Maybe this all isn't as complicated as I think, but I'm having trouble 
getting it through my thick skull.
