ok thanks! I am still sort of confused though. it does work,
i had mail entries for each user too and once i switched to using
that it started routing mail fine.

my question now would be is there a way to determine what
does not support substring matching?  e.g.:

attributetype ( 2.16.840.1.113730.3.1.13
	NAME 'mailLocalAddress'
	DESC 'RFC822 email address of this recipient'
	EQUALITY caseIgnoreIA5Match
	SYNTAX{256} )

how did/do you know that doesn't support substring matching?

not that big of a deal since it's working, just curious.

thanks again for the quick reply
