For the future, please *attach* the cygcheck output to avoid generating
false positives on message archive search.

The "ntsec" setting only affects local drives, AFAIK.  You need to play
with the "smbntsec" setting for remote shares.  Make sure the user you're
logging in as is the domain user, not a local user with the same name.
Also, there were issues with ssh authentication and access to network
shares -- try playing with the "Allow service to interact with the
desktop" checkbox in service properties.
