It was made to cope with the "list of 100 machines compromised with 
XYZ".  Paste in the list of IP and it will look up the correct email 
address, create an incident and investigation for each IP and send of a 
preformatted email.

It works for me.  It is only of real benefit when you run an internal 
whois server containing your customers contact data. (with the same key).

Contact field should be the key (without ':').   Pressing "Test" should 
show you what email address each IP's maps to.

That should work.  Internally we use "cert-mail" as a key and it works 
fine.   A more complex algorithmn may be needed if you are using RIPE 
directly or you will need some sort of local preparser (geektools or 
cyberabuse for example).
