In the Emerald Admin, Account Types, you can associate an external
system to an account type. Only services of an account type
associated to the MailSite ES will be available to mailsite.

External systems to Emerald have three ways to put together the
email adress. Significant to see is that each group has a
specific domain associated to it, and each MBR is in a specific
group. Therefore (through the relationship) each MBR has a
specific domain associated to it.

When an External system received a request that it doesn't know,
it will check three ways to find a match:

1. If EMail is not blank, its authoritive.
2. If Shell is not blank, its used with @ and the MBR's domain
3. If login is not blank, its used with @ and the MBR's domain
