Title:
  The user's primary email address is not checked in a case insensitive
  way

Status in Mahara:
  Confirmed

Bug description:
  Currently you can create 2 users, via the Admin -> Users -> Add user
  screen, with this:

  username: Test one   email: us...@example.com
  username: Test two   email: us...@example.com

  but not another user with

  username: Test three   email: us...@example.com

  As it complains the email address 'us...@example.com' is used

  However, with email addresses the domain part is case insensitive and
  only the username part is case sensitive - yet saying that most email
  servers treat the username part also as case insensitive to avoid
  email delivery confusion - see https://www.lifewire.com/are-email-
  addresses-case-sensitive-1171111

  To also avoid confusion within Mahara we should limit the primary
  email address to be case insensitive unique.
