Yep. Two possible approaches:

1) Get Postfix to tranlate the localpart to the correct case (using
   either some kind of rewrite rule or an alias file). Afraid we use
   Exim rather than Postfix: I'm not sure just what Postfix can do here.

2) A unoffical patch does exist for lmtpd:

I suspect that (1) is the recommended approach.
