[Emerald] external authentication and SMTP

Three things dealing with Emerald and NTMail.

1. John Stanners - Is there a newer beta than 4.2.0003 that may fix the
item below?

2. I have reported this bug several times and it has not been fixed yet.

When using the emerald external authentication and 4.2.0003, An external
user can check pop mail, log in to the www interface, but cannot recieve
mail. When anyone tries to send mail to the user, the NTMail smtp server
replies with "Error: Bad Command" following the RCPT clause. I cannot tell
if this is a problem with an unsupported external call or what. BTW: Dale
Reed STILL has not recieved the external call documentation for version 4.
We will change mail servers before we change accounting systems. Please
work on getting the externals fixed.

This is a critical error that I need to get fixed asap.

3. If the user appears externally, I need to be able to override the
external dll and add a user to the registry. Typically this is happening
when a user on our primary domain is being confused with a user on a
secondary domain. I need to add special config settings to the user on the
secondary, but the emerald authentication is not keeping the domains
separate even though I have told it to use unique logins.
