Hello John and Mark,

Currently, DA does not allow username creation starting with upper case. If it's not too much trouble, would it be possible to allow the username to start with upper case as well? :)

Thank you,

Reyner N.

Hello,

For consistency reasons, everything must be lower case. If we allow upper case, then the same username could be created with a lower case which might cause confusion somwhere down the line (exim does a lot of changing to lowercase too...)

Thank you for the reply John.

I thought that User != user or is it?

Thank you,

For most unix things User != user so it could in theory work. Just when people start making Root users (vs root) ... it might get a bit confusing when sifting through the logs :D We'll stick with what we have for now.
