I am having trouble figuring out what it is about the mail attribute that indicates "can not be blank". I have a field that I need to create that has a good reason to be blank and am having serious problems figuring out how I would go about indicating that blank is acceptible. I may just be missing it, but I can't find anything in the docs I've been looking at.
