Because it would be a mess to allow sympa to manage both ldap and
non-ldap accounts.

The only way currently is to create an identity account for each address
you want to use. We can look if it would possible to support an other

suggestion about how sympa could be configured to manage multiple email
addresses with only one ldap account is welcome.
