emer_su doesn't support size limits. This is something we are working
for EmerAuth.

Emerlad 2.2 and lower displays them alphabetically. I believe someone
recommended putting a space in front of the one you want as a default.

This is a bug in Emerald 2.2. You can specify the full UNC path in the
preferences for the client.

It is used when the Service type is for an External System. If you
have External systems configured, they are not used.

Yes, that is right. I belive the script that creates the database
set the default to this. You can change it in the admin.

Its just a notation field that can be used to track another balance or
external balance (some customers use it to integrate with business

This has already been done in the upcoming release.

Use our website search and search on "CallDetails". I made a couple of
ports detailing how to setup a parallel table.
