  1. What if the most desired document or letter is lost or theft along with the letterbox? The result might be catastrophic sometime! So, it should be the foremost duty to ensure the safety of your documents outside the door. A secure and heavy duty locking mailbox can do this. We were in search of the best secure mailbox.

  2. Second "sed 's/,dc=/./g'" in method #1 is unnecessary because the first one already replaced all ",dc=" with dots.
    Also, you lost the closing apostrophe of mehod #1

  3. Also, first and last calls to sed could be combined into single command to avoid unnecessary invocations of sed:

    $LDAPSEARCH "(&(objectClass=zimbraAccount)(!($ZIMBRA_ACCOUNT_STATUS=active))(mail=*$DOMAIN))" $ZIMBRA_ACCOUNT_STATUS \
    | sed 's/ou=people,//g;s/dn: uid=/:/g;s/,dc=/@/;s/,dc=/./g' \
    | sed ':a;N;$!ba;s/\n/ /g' \
    | sed "s/$ZIMBRA_ACCOUNT_STATUS: //g;s/:/\n/g"

    Newlines are inserted for clarity. See: the sed allows to specify several expressions in one command, and these expressions must be separated by semicolons.
    I'm in no way criticize your style. I just suggesting some kind of optimizations. That is the spirit of the open-source: learn from each other, teach each other.
