On Wednesday February 6, a bug in Cubmail addressbooks will be corrected.
Up to now, Cubmail treated the uni as case-sensitive, with the undesirable effect that a user logging in at different times as xy123, XY123, Xy123, would have different addressbooks for each variation.

The uni will no longer be case-sensitive, and addressbooks for the same uni will be merged into one.
Other preferences were also different based on case. They could not be merged. The version for the uni in all lower case will be used from here on.

This affects Cubmail the web mail software. It does not affect addressbooks in other clients (Thunderbird, Outlook, Apple Mail, etc).
