I'd like to specify for a single user that files/folders that are created in his samba share always have 755 as file rights. Just found out how to do this globally for every samba share. Is there a possibility to set this by user?

If each user's Samba share is a separate (sub)directory in the filesystem, you could likely do this with ACLs. – fission Dec 5 '12 at 0:34
