Enable trim name in the RadiusNT admin. That way when call records come
in user@domain is turned into 'user' and Emerald knows who to bill.

RadiusNT/X 3 sends the users AccountID during an authentication and gets
it back from the NAS in accounting responses. That way it doesen't matter
what the 'name' of the user logged in is as far as Emerald Accounting.
One could for example have two users with the same name both getting
billed seperatly for usage.

Have Fun!
