i would also plea for making it case-insensitive again! We were hit by this too,
and I never saw any mail system in which the local Part ist Case sensitive!

Sincerly,

We're looking into this. Tracking internally as DOP-1424.

Isn't the user name in the original Unix mail system (and presumably
most of its descentants) case sensitive?  In which case it has to
distinguish between mail sent to bob and to Bob?

E.g.
https://stackoverflow.com/questions/9807909/are-email-addresses-case-sensitive
discusses this - including quotes from RFCs ...

The local part of an email domain has absolutely nothing to do with any
(local or non-local) user account - and who says that there are any user
accounts/logins (apart from root and so-called system users) on the mail
system?
Yes, it *could* have something to do, and yes it actually may often be
the case but that's just a - intended or not intended - coincidence ....

Message handling systems MUST preserve case, systems delivering messages
to a mailbox SHOULD ignore case.

RFCs, especially earlier ones, require local-part to be case senstive
but that was a poorly thought out directive and the world largely
ignored it.

Every Unix/Linux system (I’d say that represents the majority of mail systems) has a case sensitive local part. Most mail admins have set their systems up to normalize all users on lowercase names, but that is not and has not always been the case.
