I have set up multiple identies for an account, which for ok:

However, if I reply to a mail sent to, automatic selection of the identity ''
fails, and the default identity of the account is used as the sending identity.

Is there a reason to make the match case sensitive here, or shouldn't this be
rather a caseless match? I know case does not matter in host names, but I am not
sure whether case might matter for email accounts (but that would be kind of
obscure, and it would only be relevant here if one person has two identities
that differ only in case of the user part of the email address).

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create an additional identity for any email account as described in
2. Send a message to that identity and change a letter in the domain name part
of the address from lower- to uppercase (or vice versa), so that it differs
insignificantly from the identitiy's email address.
3. Read that message and hit 'Reply'. 

Actual Results:  
The default identity for the account gets selected as the Sender instead of the
additional one.

Expected Results:  
The additional identity should have been selected as the Sender.
