RE: Netscape Messenger

What I have is a list of members (multiple member attributes) with 1 email address(1 mail attribute in a comma-seperated list).  The member attributes refer to dn's within the DB.

Are you saying that you have one member attribute with comma-separated email addresses?  That doesn't sound too kosher to me... have you considered multiple member attributes, one email address per attribute?  Remember LDAP supports having more than one attribute-value pair with same attribute name (multiple valued attributes).

Hello All,
    I have a question in reference to Netscape Messenger and OpenLDAP 1.2.7.  I have created an objectclass called groupOfNames with attributes cn, o, member, objectclass, and mail.  I am able to create a list of email addresses for multiple people by seperating them with commas and a space.  When someone views this entry with their browser, they can click on the hyperlink and it will auto-populate the "TO:" fields.  My problem is when you do a search when creating a new email message and it finds that particular group, the "TO:" field does auto-populates but puts double quotes on anything before the first @ sign.  The rest of the addresses are still there but the mail server cannot recognize this "TO:" field.  Here is an example of the bad "TO:" field:
TEST Group <"jpreves"@xxx.com, testuser@xxx.com, bob@xxx.com>
Is there anything I can do either to Netscape or to LDAP that will correct this.  This all lies within creating a distribution lists.
Any help would be appreciated?
