Thank you for the explanation Benjamin! I got it now. BTW, one note for 
others: Opera does not support NTLM. :(

: Normally you won't have a reason to use another domain, the server
: appplication uses the domain of the user account it is running with.
: Make sure your application is running with the domain account you want to
: use AND sufficent privileges (needed to query the user database).
: You have to give a domain user using domain\user - if, an only if, the
: server
: you're sending this information to is in *another* domain (with domain
: trustship) than the server application is working with.
: So that's necessary when domains are set up to trust each other. The 
: web access I'm writing this email from prompts only for user name and
: password. I use this webmailer for years and it has always be the same, it
: looks the same with every browser that supports NTLM auth (IE, Firefox,
: konqueror, countless others on Unix and Solaris).
: I give you an example:
: My user account is in the default domain "g" where the server is in, but
: other users from a domain (ie "d") that is trusted by domain "g" have to
: write d\myusername. The difference is that Windows will query the trusted
: domain instead to look in it's own user database. Only in this special 
: you need to specify another domain.
: - You will need hm... I don't remember ...years ago.. (not admin rights 
: at least "helper" privileges) to be able to query for other domain users
: than yourself. It's the credentials from the logged in (server) 
: user, if you are running with a local account you won't be able to query 
: domain controller.
: - You can *not* just give specify another domain in the user field if the
: serevrs are not set up to trust each other
: - You can also *not* authenticate users of another trusted domain, if you
: use trusted domains, without your application user having privileges in
: every of the trusted domains
