Sorry, but you're abusing LDAP schema as cn, which stands for commonName, is
not intended for system ids, but for common names (surprise!).

There's plenty of LDAP attributes in standard schemas which can be used for
your purpose, like "uid", "userid", and several others. If that's not enough
you could even add your own defined attributes to existing class or even new
classes for your objects. There's absolutely no need to abuse existing
attributes, so to me this looks like a PEBKAC with your LDAP admin.

Furthermore I don't think Claws Mail should encourage such bad practices by
supporting them, so an invalid/wontfix request IMHO.
