What do you mean no local equivalent?  Do you mean there is no
DomainName attribute defined in the schema on the ldap proxy

| Here is what happens:
| -----------------------------snip
| mailg# ldapsearch -x -b "" "(uid=username)" mail

You're actually searching the rootDSE on the ldap
broxy server here which is not what you expect.  I'll
bet things will work ok if you massage the suffix to
a non-empty DN.
