    I didn't think they were but I created an account: Firstname.Lastname@domain.com and could not access it (via webmail) with firstname.lastname@domain.com.

    I tried this repeatedly to be sure.

    When you try and create a duplicate mailname in Plesk, but with different capitalizations, you get the error:

    "Unable to add new mail name: The mail name Firstname.Lastname is already in the domain"


    Was it always this way and I'm just noticing it now, or did something change and it pass me by?

    Thanks...:rolleyes:

    Webmail uses IMAP to access accounts.
    I think there is a configuration option for the Courier-IMAP to ignore case; I dont have access to a Plesk machine to make sure.

    With a default install of Plesk though, usernames for email are case sensitive - at least when using IMAP.
