Hello Piotr, Thanks for reply! You are absolutely right! I was using first resource to verify my changes. So as I understood my current DB information is OK from RIPE's point of view and the tool is not processing it correctly. And from the rest of Your message I understood that it wise to duplicate abuse contact in org: object as abuse-mailbox: attribute until everything will settle down right?
