You can't. LDAP attributes gets mapped to radius attribute (both check
and reply items). You can't just go and say "hey, if the user can't
authenticate with this attribute, then try that attribute". At least
not without the hack I mentioned above.

Then again, it's entirely possible that I misunderstood what you said.
You're not being clear or specific about how you "can configure
multiple passwords for each user"

... and PLEASE remove unneeded emails when replying from digest. It's
confusing, wasting time and bandwidth, and have no benefit whatsoever.
