I suggest using a specialized schema for such use. Maybe you would want
to read through this thread:
I've faced a lot of problems until I decided to follow the approach
described in that thread, i.e. a custom schema (with our own OIDs) based
on laser and qmail-ldap schemas.
IMHO there is a lack of a good ldap mail schema to cover a wide range of
user needs out-of-the-box.
Storing site-local information inside a distributed database strikes me as a
bit counter-intuitive. But if your MDAs have distributed access to these
mailboxes, then the most natural solution would be to use an attribute
containing a URL.
Our usual approach, since LDAP lacks an actual URL attribute syntax, is to
define attributes that inherit from the labeledURI attributetype for these
