Thanks for this, someone else pointed this out to me off-list as well.
Apparently the terminology I was using to Google this issue wasn't
right, and searching for local_recipient_maps got me headed in the right
direction. As far as breaking RFCs, I know this is a bad thing, but my
skills in the LDAP arena are non-existent at this time. Once I get
better in this arena, I'll see if I can't do this the right way. My
other reason for screwing around with this is for a similar, but
opposite scenario. This is somewhat of an exercise for the email server
at work, due for a rebuild at the end of the month. At the office, the
employees names are very prone to misspelling, so we accept everything,
so I'm going to need a catch-all in that situation as well.
