I am still hoping that some will commit the following patch to mailer.py
so please let my wishes get true...
This patch allows users to use capital letters for map substitution
names. If you use a map substitution name with capital letters in the
current release of mailer.py it won't work as all option names are
converted to lower case but not the name of the value.
So I changed this to a way that the value is also converted to lower
case and added some hints to the config examples file.
- it's now possible to use capital letters in option values which will be passed through a map
- added a hint to the description of the mapping process
