Package name eMail or not?

There was some discussion [1] about an ITP I filed last year for a package 
called email [2], which suffered from an inappropriate license and name 

The upstream has since released a newer version under the GPL and has 
indicated to me a willingness to have the package called eMail.

My question is if this change of capitalization acceptable to Debian, or 
would it still insist on a different package name? It has been recently 
accepted into Cygwin with the email name [3] and upstream is, for that 
reason, not too keen to radically alter it. If eMail is not reasonable name, 
can anyone suggest one that is?
