Are there any sects or significant Rabbanim, other than those in Chabad, who hold that the late Lubavitcher Rebbe (now that he has passed away) is mashiach?

If there are those that do believe him to be the mashiach, do they think that he is the only option or that others (whether we know who they are or not) can also be candidates?

"If there are those that do believe him to be the mashiach, do they think that he is the only option or that others (whether we know who they are or not) can also be candidates?" So by "to be the mashiach" you mean actually "to perhaps be the mashiach"? You should probably edit your first paragraph, then, to clarify that. –  msh210 Jun 19 at 18:46

@ShmuelBrin The great majority of names on there belong to Lubavitch chasidim, and I don't know how reliable the others are given that at least one signature was fraudulently added, and it was only removed after the pseudo-signatory (the former Rosh Yeshiva of Yeshivat HaGolan) found out about it and protested. –  Fred Jun 19 at 21:26
