[ejabberd] Using the full JID in a LDAP field

It seems that I was not confident enough because it works !

{host_config, "domainXt", [{auth_method,ldap},
 {ldap_servers,  ["localhost"]},
 {ldap_uids,     [{"mail", "%u at domainX"}]},
 {ldap_base,   "ou=users, dc=example,dc=com"},
 {ldap_filter, "(&(objectClass=mailAccount)(mail=*@domainX))"},
 {ldap_rootdn, ""},
 {ldap_password, ""}]}.

The only last bit that will be great would be to do that automatically for
all domainX in the ou=domains. But I guess it's another story :-)
(sorry for the noise, I really didn't ever think it would work so easily)
