all the files appear to be identical. I commented out one line that I did not see in yours but still no go.
Now I am actually thinking about re-installing ubuntu server but the I dread reconfiguring the mailserver again.

Hi -

More suggestions:

1. Let me reverse the advice I gave above: consider DELETING Winbind:

sudo apt-get purge <package_name>
2. Check your "/etc/Pam.d/system-auth" for any traces of WinBind/Active Directory, and comment them out:

As root, I was able to do startx to go into the GUI. I was able to see the user accounts and it appears all the user accounts have been set to "Custom". I remember while uninstalling dtc, I unknowingly said yes to managing account information manually. This is definitely the problem but unfortunately I have no clues about how to fix it. I googled but did not get any specific information. If only I can reset the account type to the ubuntu defaults, that will be great.
