That particular attribute is included in the schema (objectclass=mailRecipient) so it is easy to add using the ipa user-mod --addattr command. I then followed Adam Young's instructions to change the interface such that we could view/edit the new attribute in the UI: 1. Edit the /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/ipalib/plugins/user.py to include the new field 2. Add an entry to /usr/share/ipa/ui/user.js for the new value 3. Don't forget to restart httpd and refresh your browser cache to pick up the new fields We needed that instead of using the multi-valued mail attribute because there are circumstances where we need to differentiate between the "master" email address and aliases. It's easy to add though and works great. I certainly wouldn't want to be in the position of adding lots of attributes not already included in IPA, but a one or two-off seems pretty reasonable to manage. I don't know if it's still in the I'm sure *very* future plans for IPA, but I remember seeing some application (MTA, mail store) support mentioned at one time. These sorts of attributes might be nice to have if and when that happens.
