I am having 2 problems with VOP and Emerald.
1) Listed in you FAQ you say to go into EmerAuth under Emerald Admin, I do
not have a tab called EmerAuth !!, What tab is it under and can you give me
a step by step in setting it up ? please
2)I also want to know if using Emerald and VOPMail together is the best way.
We have most users with 1 dial up account but they will have about 5 - 30
mailboxes, will this be ok ?
We run EM/RNT in SQL6.5.
Thank you

VOPMail and Mailsite do NOT use EmerAuth. They connect directly to the
DB and use stored procs that are included with Emerald. What problems
Are you having? The below is pretty detailed in the steps to set it
