Description Matthias 2003-12-15 20:42:10 UTC
we have upgraded to SAMBA 3.0.0 (Debian). Our FileServer is running on Linux 2.4.23.
Everything is running fine except from OpenOffice files with read-only
permissions and mails in local folders on the FileServer.

The OpenOffice read-only issue is solved with 3.0.1rc3 but the Mozilla local
folder problem did not disappear with 3.0.1rc3.

What is the problem with Mozilla local folder? Mozilla local folder emails are
stored on the FileServer in the users people share. The permissions are set to
full access for the user and read only for the rest.(-rwxr--r--    1 blumm   

If the user opens Mozilla s local folder all emails are displayed with the
subject in the overview list but the content of the email is blank. Mozilla
cannot read and display the mail from the SAMBA FileServer.

I hope I can attach the log output. If you need more information to nail down
the problem, please let me know.

Thanks for your effort.

before last week we updated from 3.0.0 to the latest debian stable 3.0.1
version. This fixed our problem with OpenOffice read-only files but the mozilla
local folder problem still exist.

I hope you can track down the problem. Please let me know if you need more
information and material.

please retest against 3.0.3rc1 and reopen if still a problem.  Thanks.

thanks for your effort in fixing this problem.
If I specify the local folder to a URI on the FileServer it still doesn't work
with SAMBA 3.0.4-1 and Mozilla 1.6. But if I map the URI to a Windows network
drive it is working fine.

Currently I have to say it is a Mozilla problem but I will test if a share on a
second windows machine shows the same behaviour.

Thanks again.

sorry for the same, cleaning up the database to prevent unecessary reopens of bugs.
