But I don't want it to be case-sensitive.  I've had a situation where the 
list name is "list at domain.com", and the "public name of this list" is 
"List".  If I send a message to "List at domain.com" it will be posted, but if 
I send it to "list at domain.com", it will give me the "implicit destination" 
error.  I don't think that this is sensible behavior.  This also sounds to 
me like what Marian was attempting to describe, although she might not have 
realized that the "public name" was not the same case as the address she 
sent to.
