Are secondary index's available in .6.5? or are they only in .7?

about them. One day I decide(for some reason) that I want to send a mass email to only the
users with AOL email addresses. Is there a mechanism for getting only keys whose email attribute
contains the string ? Or is this frowned upon? I could also envision separate CF's
for each email type; that stored values to use as keys into my Users CF. Say the AOL CF contains
the usernames of everyone that has an aol account. So I would pull all of the keys from that
CF and then use them to index into the Users CF to pull their email addresses.  It seems to
me that this is redundant. So I would like your thoughts on my example.
