Re: Create Distribution List

I cannot fine out a way to create a similar list in OpenLDAP, which is a
serious buzz, not to mention deal killer in this instance.

From what I know is that in object class inetOrgPerson you can have
multiple mail attributes. So if you define you list as a pseudo person, you
can get all the mail addresses. Possibly the most primitive and ugly way to
do it.

I will have to give that a try I suppose. It is a shame that there is not a
"native" way of accomplishing the creation of a distribution list like the MS
Outlook address book affords. Actually, may MUAs such as claws-mail have this
feature embedded into their code. However, that requires me to have multiple
address books and is not what I am looking for.

there would be multiple ways to create something like this in an ldap schema.

The bigger issue is what kind of queries your clients like thunderbird are willing to perform.

So this is more a client issue than an openldap issue.
