I think your design is a bit strange. Why not have these mail attributes

accounts for different virtual domains. So basically I need to split
domains and add email accounts respectively to them.
This requirement doesn't preclude the solution Gavin proposed. In fact, I have
a system running similar to this (however using mailAlternateAddress).
Can you explain why you can't just effectively have multiple aliases which
span multiple domains on one entry ? Is it some limitation in your MTA, or
your configuration ?
For example, if the only reason you can't use this is because you are using
mail as the naming attribute ... maybe you should select a different naming
No it's not because of mail attrib it's rather because of homeDirectory.
For every virtual domain I need to have different homeDirectory. So when
user1@dom1 logs in it is given, homeDirectory=/home/user1/dom1/ but when
logs in as user1@dom2 -> homeDirectory=/home/user1/dom2/ ..... that's
why I need to distinguish this attribute in LDAP.
My first idea was to build overlay to update userPassword for particular
user in EVERY entry in LDAP - but building such overlay is not so trivial.
Really thanks for your help.
