Remember 2.5 is a CLOSED beta. Any mention of it here and you
violate the 2.5 testing agreement.

Is there a way to add FP users w/out going thru the FP administrator?
I'm not a big FP fan and have very little experience with it.

Its to create NT SAM users. No explanation needed.

No. However, you can piggy back certain ones, like NTMail. What I mean
by this is you could have an ESID of 3 that is for NT SAM, and then just
use that number with the NTMail DLL. NTMail and Mailsite have no specific
ES requirements.
