Description of problem:
sendmail doesn't seem to match mixed case yp aliases. With an alias
defined as 'Test: email@example.com', sendmail doesn't match 'test' or
'Test' but if the aliases is changed to 'test: firstname.lastname@example.org' it
works fine. I don't know if this is a bug or a feature. This happens
