As I have never used either, fusion directory was just a suggestion,
there are other similar programs available, LAM for instance.

You certainly can extend the schema on Samba 4 and you can also create
individual classes and attributes, but I don't think you can do it in
the way described on the page you linked to. You cannot run the
VBScript on a Samba DC, so how would you get the OID ?

What I was trying to suggest was, at the same time you upgrade to
Samba AD, it may be a chance to upgrade to a more recent mailserver
