I do not think it applies; let me elaborate:

Client: Windows XP Pro SP2 part of SAMBA-based domain
MUA: Outlook 2003 SP2 with MAPI profile pointing to their Exchange
(Server 2003 SP2) account in a separate untrusted (in the sense that
an AD trust between AD and SAMBA does not exist - I do not know if it
is possible, but is not applicable in this scenario) 2003 AD
Process: User logs into SAMBA domain, opens Outlook, clicks on the
Change password button (which is not always there) and receives an
error that the password cannot be changed.

Sorry, I was not specific -- the OWA change password function works
fine, the problem is when users attempt to change their password in
Outlook and the fact that sometimes the "Change Password" button is
not available when the user opens Outlook.
