Here is an overview of the issue:
---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Key: JAMES-323
    Summary: using toUppercase, toLowerCase, equalsIgnoreCase without specifying the locale
is a bug
       Type: Bug

     Status: Unassigned
   Priority: Minor

    Project: James

   Assignee: 
   Reporter: Hontvari Jozsef

    Created: Thu, 16 Sep 2004 9:43 PM
    Updated: Thu, 16 Sep 2004 9:43 PM
Environment: turkish locale

Description:
Subject tells all, converting case in a server application without specifying an explicit
locale is almost always a bug. People may assume that this works for ASCII characters, and
usually does, but not in all locale. All such code were fixed about two years ago, but I read
the JDJ newsletter article and wondered what is the current status of James, and indeed I
found a few new places, where the same bug reappeared:
toUppercase():
-MBoxMailRepository.java

toLowercase():
-CommandListservManager.java
-RemoteDelivery.java
-SenderHostIs.java

I didn't find equalsIgnoreCase calls.

All of the above should be replaced with toLowercase(Locale.ENGLISH) or toUppercase(Locale.ENGLISH)
