MS account email always ends up in upper case

Hi,

Ever since I've linked my MS and Skype account, my email is now always "seen" as [email protected] LIVE.COM.
Even my Windows Phone when I sign in with MS account, it gets recognized as @LIVE.COM at the end.

It's slightly annoying, I've checked all my settings on the web/computer/phone.. Nothing does the trick. I do sign in with lowercase email, but it somehow gets changed to uppercase LIVE.COM on it's own.

Anyone else experienced something like this?

This is a screenshot of switching local account to MS. Note that name before LIVE.COM is in lowercase, and I did sign in with all lower case email.

I've also asked on Microsoft answers webpage, but they have no idea what I'm talking about :(

I'm using Windows 8.1 Pro x64, and Nokia Lumia 930 (Cyan).

Any kind of tip is greatly appreciated.

Edit: add a space after @ in email to break the link.

Sounds like it's just a simple advertising gimmick, draws more attention to live.com.

It does really look like it. Like I said, it's slightly annoying, especially the part about sending emails - the sender's mail ends with upper case live.com.

I have no idea to whom can I turn to about his problem. Guess I'm back to spamming MS forums.

Thanks.

Regards
