Suggested Validation

I accidentally set one of the user's e-mail address to the same value as one of the mailboxes (one is data@, the other can see how that could happen).

Luckily, I noticed it right away.  If I hadn't, the case would have continually notified itself.  It sent a notification that it was edited, which got sucked back into the case, which sent another note that it was edited...which got sucked back in..etc.  This would go on indefinitely.

I realize that this is an unusual, dumb-person move on my part, but I think it's serious enough to warrant the following validation:

mailbox addresses cannot be the same as user addresses.  Validate on both ends.

This is actually validated in the next minor release which should be shipping shortly.
