A package in Debian cannot be called "eMail" - package names must be
all lower case (policy §5.6.6)
Having a package called just "email" would be very confusing for our
users. I suggest you qualify the package name with e.g. the author's
name [given that the author seems obstinately unwilling to give his
software a non-generic name] or something like that.
