  • Can you explain more the global probrem? I am understanding that you are sending and email from apex – Torsen Feb 24 '17 at 12:25
  • No need to worry about case, Apex is not case sensitive. So it won't cause any error. – Rohit Mourya Feb 24 '17 at 12:32
  • I am reading body of email from static resource and have to replace {!ContactFirstName } with actual value – Ranjit P Feb 24 '17 at 12:34

    str.replace('{!contact.Firstname}' , 'Ranjit') you need to use firstName not name – Tushar Sharma Feb 24 '17 at 13:03

First convert your string to lower cap with the below code

str = str.toLowerCase();

then replace the string

str.replace('{!contact.Firstname}' , 'Ranjit')
