I tried "email" and "mail" neither one resulted in the field being 
populated.  I double checked from the server side:

ipa user-show --all --raw berg | grep -i mail
   mail: stephen.berg.ctr at nrlssc.navy.mil

The field is definitely there and correct, but the LDAP settings won't 
pull it from the server for some reason.
