Would my suggestion below work for you ?

I don't know if this is easily configurable, but the online
documentation for sympa 6.1 has an example that seems to permit
filtering by multiple addresses with ldap.
Their example shows both
salaun at cru.fr
O.salaun at cru.fr
being accepted with the same filter, whereas only the first is coded as
This seems to offer interesting possibilities, allowing users to have
alternate email adresses with different prefixes of their ldap adresse.
(by automatically adding * to the beginning of user ldap adresses.)
The code could require a minimum length to minimise false positives,
and/or add the * just before @.
Would this work, and without too much effort ?
