Quanah, you hit the nail on the head with that one, thanks you.

even using an ACL like this returns all requested attributes.

access to dn.children="dc=fadesa,dc=es" attrs=entry,mail 
	by * read

# ldapsearch -x  -h -s sub -b "dc=fadesa,dc=es" '(mail=*)'
# 00010, fadesa.es
dn: uid=00010,dc=fadesa,dc=es
mail: perico@foo.bar

However, A question that remains unanswered for me, and perhaps
someone on the list can explain it, is what's the difference between
using "attrs=userPassword" (in a typical password access restriction
ACL) and "attrs=mail" (in my ACL). Why I need add "entry" for mail 
and not for userPassword.
