I think that I suggested making the comparason case-insensitive on the
domain part (not local part).  The COMPARATOR argument defines the
comparason for the local part (which defaults to "i:ascii-casemap").
For internet mail addresses, the COMPARATOR type of "i;octet" should
be used if the system supports case-sensitive "localpart", ie mailbox.

This should allow scripts to distinguish between addresses like:

        username(_at_)company(_dot_)com, USERNAME(_at_)company(_dot_)com

while treating the following addresses as the same:

        username(_at_)company(_dot_)com, username(_at_)COMPANY(_dot_)COM
