*** NOTES FOR LINUX USERS ***
In order for the email to work, the "from" header must be set to "isr.ist.utl.pt". *** HOW TO INSTALL A LPD PRINTER IN WINDOWS ***
  1. Launch "Add Printer" wizard
  2. Choose "Local printer" (!!!)
  3. Choose "Add port", then TCP/IP port
  4. Enter the IP address, rather than the hostname (!!!)
  5. Select "Custom network card" (!!!)
  6. Select "LPD port"
  7. And that's all, folks!
*** NOTES FOR WINDOWS USERS *** In case of difficulties on accessing SAMBA (shared directories/printers from linux) from a Windows machine, try to follow these instructions:
Windows 95/98 ============= 

Using the registry editor (regedit), create the registry setting
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\VxD\VNETSUP Add a
new DWORD value: Value Name: EnablePlainTextPassword Data: 0x01.

Windows NT ========== 

Using the registry editor (regedit), create the registry setting
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Rdr\Parameters
Add a new DWORD value: Value Name: EnablePlainTextPassword Data: 0x01

Windows 2000 ============ 

Using the registry editor (regedit), create the registry setting
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanWorkStation\Parameters
Add a new DWORD value: Value Name: EnablePlainTextPassword Data: 0x01

Once these registry changes have been made, reboot the Windows machine
and try to map a network drive on the Samba server again. It should
work as long as the Samba server is using plain text passwords.
