Break apart LDAP attributes

I can connect to AD using the LDAP subsystem and can import/synch user information. But my organizations AD is part of a larger forest and the AD accounts I'm accessing does not contain email information. Is there some way to programmatically take the returned LDAP attributes and manipulate them and set the Alfresco user attributes.

For example, in our AD we have displayName as ' Last, First ' and the corresponding email address for this user is first.last@something.com. I want to be able to retrieve and split the displayName value from AD so I can set the Last name, First name and email address when the users is brought into Alfresco from AD. Is this possible and where should I look to get an idea how to do this.
