      Description

      Email addresses are case sensitive in moodle, but not in the world.

      Some problems appear in the system's functions due to this feature:

      1) Forgot passwort.

      Users cannot use the function "forgot passwort" via email, if they type Rainbow@... instead of rainbow@... - moodle doesn't find the email because of capitalized letter.

      2) Import users via csv.

      There are some users in the system and i want to import an edited csv document with users, skipping already existing users. In moodle i have a user with "Rainbow@...", the same user has the email "rainbow@..." in the csv-document.   At the end i have two users in moodle with same email-adress, but with and without capitalized letter.
