WHERE did you get the 5.0 from? I can't find anywhere. I have an
of the DLL available that should work with Emerald, but I can't test it
without 5.0.

I just updated the DLL to use Emerald tables rather than the fields that
they specify. From what I gather, you can have a different table per
domain. What I did is use the Table name specifier as a domain
and then you can specify the domain for each virtual host (as you
the domains in Emerald).

There are several functions in the DLL like CreateTable, UpdateUser,
etc that are for the admin to create and maintain the database. I just
set all these to fail since Emerald should be in charge of these and
not IMail.
