I am not sure but suspect that you need a filter for the mail client to
expand the list of users.
The attribute that would help with that is "member". It is a multi value
attribute of the group object that contains the list of all the users
that are directly or indirectly (via nested groups) are members of the
If you need more than user DNs but user entries then you might want to

Use the entered group to search for all the users who's memberOf
attribute contains given group.
