You could use the ToLower() function to change the case of people's Email addresses
e.g.

$mbxlist = Get-Mailbox
Foreach ($user in $mbxlist)
{
  $usermail = $mail.EmailAddresses
  $newemail = ""
  Foreach ($email in $usermail)
  {
      $lowermail = $email.SmtpAddress.ToLower()
      $newemail = "$newemail$loweremail,"
  }
  $newemail = $newemail.substring(0, $newemail.length-1)
  Set-mailbox -Id $user.Identity -EmailAddresses $newemail
}

Hey Gazambey,

I think this would do the trick for you?

but be careful and make sure you understand the script before you do implement it.

Any other experts also please feel free to modify it
