Subject Re: distribution list, group of Contacts and groupOfNames
Date Sun, 03 May 2009 18:17:27 GMT
Finally, I decide that is impossible...

I try to update manually the mail attribute from "Windows Mail"....
The mail returned value is formated like these: "userlist <user1@domain.com; 
user2@domain.com; .....>" ....
And this doesn't work...

If I have several mail attributes, it only gets the first....

Conclusion:

1.- I'm going to use the classical groupOfNames....
2.- Make a batch that reads the member of the group, and store the mail 
attributes in the file of a mail distribuition list with the name of the 
group....
3.- In windows mail (or other), when i read the mail attribute this gets 
nameofgroup@mydomain....

That's all!
