RE: How to replace account with inetOrgPerson?

I had the same issue when I found I needed the mail attribute 'after the
fact'.  You can add the extensibleObject objectClass to the account,
then you should be able to add the email attr.

The only way I know is you export the entry, modify the ldif and
I just did that for all our groups, because we extended the schema and
wanted that our own objectClass has sup of groupOfUniqueNames.

The account objectClass is in the cosine schema.
