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

On Error Resume Next

Const ADS_SCOPE_SUBTREE = 2

Set objConnection = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
Set objCommand =   CreateObject("ADODB.Command")
objConnection.Provider = "ADsDSOObject"
objConnection.Open "Active Directory Provider"
Set objCommand.ActiveConnection = objConnection

objCommand.Properties("Page Size") = 1000
objCommand.Properties("Searchscope") = ADS_SCOPE_SUBTREE 

objCommand.CommandText = _
    "SELECT AdsPath FROM 'LDAP://OU=Finance,DC=fabrikam,DC=com' WHERE objectCategory='user'"  
Set objRecordSet = objCommand.Execute

objRecordSet.MoveFirst
Do Until objRecordSet.EOF
    Set objUser = GetObject(objRecordSet.Fields("AdsPath").Value)
    strEmailAddress = objUser.Mail
    strEmailAddress = LCase(strEmailAddress)
    objUser.Mail = strEmailAddress
    objUser.SetInfo
    objRecordSet.MoveNext
Loop
