O.k., as long as you understand that you ought to have "by * none" and
why that is default in this case.

Adam's (Williams) one of the few perversive ACIer on this list. Why make
it supremely difficult for yourself? What happens if you use a perfectly
normal ACL? What does your ACI look like? Not that I could help you ...

"all values by "uid=mailadmin, dc=com", (=n)"

'man slapd.access'. At the least, look for "privileges" if you're using
a *reasonably* (like Openldap www.openldap.org advertises as *the*
standard OL version) recent OL version. You do not say.
