No, the expression requires that comma to be present.
Removing the ',' might have undesirable side effects
would match "mymail=foo". Using a question operator

This of course, matches entries than
access to dn=.*,mail=([^,]+)

no. commas are allowed within certain attribute
values and is rdn deliminator. I only use [^,]
in special cases (such as matching an email
address in the example of above).
