I have a table that contains thousands of rows of emails. I want to create another field on my table that has a MD5 encrypted version of the email field. so end result would be 2 fields ,
1 = original email and
2 = new field containing MD5 hash version of first field.

Keep in mind HASHBYTES only hashes the first 8000 bytes of input, so similar email messages could end up with the same hash.
