Why is [Email] the only case-sensitive field name?

    I just installed Sendy, and am sending test emails. But I've noticed that when embedding a field name into an email, the [Email] field is case sensitive. If I use [email] it doesn't work (it just includes exactly "[email]" in the message), but if I use lower case versions of any other field names, it works fine.

    Hi Steve,

    The [Email] tag uses direct match in the code to replace it with an email address unlike other tags.

    Thanks.

    Ben

    Thx, Ben. For the benefit of others who might find this thread in a search, I've also learned that custom fields are case-sensitive in the Subject field, but not in the message body.

    Bottom line: the best approach to yield predictable results is for users to treat all field names (including custom ones) as if they were case-sensitive.

    Keep up the great work, Ben.
