The localpart of an email address can be case-sensitive. The domainpart
not.. For me it's more stupid if a client changes the given username
before sending it to a server ;-)
For me the best would be to lowercase the username only if the server
reject the login, but first it should be tried a given by the user
(because some users know what they do if they enter John instead of john)

How you do this on dovecot? I have a Dovecot running too, but so far I
could not find a setting to lower-case loginnames before verify with
doveot/passwd. Is there such an easy setting in dvecot.conf? I mean
without "fighting" with the source and re-compile.

Thanks and regards
