    Any way? Sure, but you probably should wait for a Gnome3 or Gnome4 answer for a few days to avoid a huge GUI change.

    It should be noted that this does not change the password on the mail/imap/pop3 server. Those need to be changed on the server-side.

    Try

    create mask = 0755

    While chmod works with only 3 or 4 of the 4 octal values, I think Samba requires all 4. Doesn't my example show 4 octal values? It should if it doesn't.
