Mail and NTLMv2

I want to start using Linux at work. Problem is that you need to run WinXP so that you can go into your Local Security policy and have it only communicate to the mail servers with NTLMv2 Only. How could I make this happen with Linux so I can start using it here? Now if I run my mail programs it says it can't authenticate... obviously.

Suggestions? I'm not strong in Linux so if you make a reference, you'll need to be specific. Thanks!

NTLM2 looks like being NT Lan Manager Version 2 I guess.
This is an NT authentication protocol. Is the mail server exchange?
If so then you would need Novell's exchange connector for mail access or see if the mails server are running imap. Try looking to see if installing the samba client could aid your authentication issues.
