RFC 2821 (Section 2.4) specifies that mail local-parts are case-sensitive,
and RFC 2368 does not override this, so this claim is false:

However, mailto:Joe@example.com is equivalent to mailto:Joe@Example.com.

Arise, you prisoners of Windows / Arise, you slaves of Redmond, Wash,
The day and hour soon are coming / When all the IT folks say "Gosh!"
It isn't from a clever lawsuit / That Windowsland will finally fall,
But thousands writing open source code / Like mice who nibble through a wall.
