OK, got emerald pretty much ready to phase into production except for a few

I've got authentication working for my PM-2,s NetServer 16's and MAX 4000's
no problem from the ODBC database. I've even got the MBR's and SA's
imported into the SQL database from our 'homegrown' dbase which currently
resides on a FreeBSD unix box.

Next phase... From discussions with Dale I'm told it's possible to have
RadiusNT authenticate users from a RADIUS style USER text file and if the
password is set up as type "UNIX" RadiusNT will perform an MD5 hash,
compare the passwords and then write the clear text password to the Emerald
DB. What's the procedure needed to get this going ? Simply put the USER and
MASTER.PASSWD files into the Radius DIR and away we go or ??

Secondly, where can I get the NTMAIL.DLL file I need to authenticate NTMail
users via the Emerald DB ?

Side note, what are the steps involved to upgrade my Emerald 2.2.10 to the
2.2.30 beta version ?
