N.As I'm sure Mark knows, distinguishing case in mailboxes is a
deprecated practice, and local mail delivery systems are strongly
encouraged to avoid it.  Nevertheless, the practice *does exist*, and
therefore originating and intermediate MTAs *must* distinguish those
addresses, and forward to all of them.  The originating MTA cannot
know what the ultimate destination's policy is, and it must not guess.
