Im using Sympa 5.3.2 and openldap-2.3.30-2.fc6.

I've been able to create a list by getting names from the LDAP directory, but
this way I need to synchronize this list with LDAP several times a day.

I'd like to know if it's possibile to tell Sympa not to create a list and
keep it synchronized by constantly querying LDAP, but using the LDAP
itself as list.
You can't really do that because Sympa needs to keep a local cache of list members in its DB.
But if you set the 'ttl' list parameter to something very long (like one day or one week), then you'll have a behavior similar to what you expect. Note that Sympa will query the member data source (ie your LDAP directory) before sending a message to the list.
