ucase & lcase with access sql statements in asp

I have a native ASP application that makes calls to access dbs for lookups.  is there a way to eliminate the issues with queries and lcase/ucase situations.  The user may have changed their id from john.doe@gmail.com to John.Doe@gmail.com and I need to make sure I pick up both.

  strSQL1 = "SELECT * from officials WHERE email='" & rs("official1") & "'"

Try with:

strSQL1 = "SELECT * from officials WHERE UCase(email)='" & UCase(rs("official1")) & "'"
