Case sensitive email

I presume this is an old issue but, once again, I want to figure out how to login to the Android app and I see email is case sensitive. That is a bug. Email addresses are defined to be case-insensitive and i have no idea what case combination I used on what platform.

Is there any hope of getting this bug fixed?

As a practical matter, applications almost always treat email addresses without regard to case, and this seems to work out well for everyone.

However, as a strictly technical matter, your assertion that email addresses are defined to be case-insensitive is false. The left-hand side is in fact defined to be case sensitive and mail systems must preserve the case as supplied (reference RFC5321 section 2.4).

But again as a practical matter, when we are talking providing identity and not flow through a mail system, case usually doesn't matter.
