the sender_pattern in the KeyList file should be case-insensitive. If email senders use capital letters to beautify their email addresses these addresses might not be caught by sender_pattern specified in KeyFile

To be precise about a solution here in terms of the relevant RFCs, it's actually necessary to be case-sensitive in the local-part (before the "@") and case-insensitive in the hostname (after the "@").
However I'm willing to bet there aren't many cases in the real world where, for example, "root" and "Root" are different users.
I'll attach a patch for you to try later this morning.

Thanks, I would appreciate a patch. To be case sensitive in the local part is absolutely fine. The part after the '@' is my concern.
FYI: I am currently using version 2.0.1 installed from the FreeBSD ports tree. Would I need to upgrade to the latest version to apply the patch?
Proposed patch #1
The patch (attached) is against the most recent source but should still apply with reasonable munging options to the patch command. Even if not, it's a one-line change so you can apply it manually and try it yourself if the patch command complains too much.
File Added: PATCH
Thanks for the patch. Works fine. Will the patch be included in the next release?
Yes. I currently have no target date set for a new release, but given the other changes made recently I might do one either late tomorrow or soon after the long weekend.
v2.2.0 released, containing this patch.
