Hello Matthieu,

this is the ldap queries when sending a mail from test account:

ldb: ldb FULL SEARCH:
(&(!(isDeleted=TRUE))(&(objectclass=person)(otherMailbox=test at novanetwork.de)))
SCOPE: sub DN: ou=HQ,dc=novanetwork,dc=loc

ldb: ldb FULL SEARCH:
(&(!(isDeleted=TRUE))(&(objectclass=person)(|(mail=test at novanetwork.de)(otherMailbox=test at novanetwork.de))))
SCOPE: sub DN: ou=HQ,dc=novanetwork,dc=loc

so only two ldap requests for each sent mail.

best regards
