The main thing you have to look at is the pop3 name. Remember that for
the SAME mail server (like Post.Office) the pop3 names must be unique
no matter WHAT the domain the user is in. So when you solve that, you
solve your Emerald issue.

If you have two mail servers, its not a big issue (or one that can
multiple pop3 names the same, but on different IP addresses like NTMail

Still authentication is an issue. Most people work around the
authentication problem by using the full email address of the user
in the login field.
