in thread contact details

The local part of an email address (i.e., the "PugSA" in "") is case sensitive. This is specified in RFC 2821. It's a good idea not to treat your local addresses case sensitively, but it's a bad idea to assume a remote system is not case sensitive until you know otherwise.

    True, though the spec also mentions that:
    . . . exploiting the case sensitivity of mailbox local-parts impedes interoperability and is discouraged.
