How to handle EMSMDB.DLL error in Exchange

After an installation of MS Exchange 4.0 client on Winodws 95,  the first startup of the MS Exchange got the following message :
        EMSMDB.DLL installation incorrect  or the file is corrupted
The MS Exchange can still be opened, but cannot access the mail box and open any folder in the mail server

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

From Technet...

The error message references Emsmdb.dll, but the correct DLL, Emsmdb32.dll, does reside in the <Winroot>\System directory. The wrong file is being referenced because the Wsock32.dll is not the right version; Wsock32.dll therefore references Emsmdb.dll instead of Emsmdb32.dll.
 
RESOLUTION
==========
 
To resolve this problem:
 
- Replace Wsock32.dll with the Windows 95 version. Wsock32.dll can be extracted from WIN95_11.CAB on CD-ROM or WIN95_12 on DMF floppy disk.
