Hi,

Sorry for this late reply. I only discovered / subscribed to this list
today and noticed this thread in the January archives.

My ISP also gave me a login name with a '@' in the it, and claimed that
he could not avoid it.

The OP may benefit from the .netrc approach: it's a good workaround.
Just escape the '@' in the .netrc file, like:

machine bla.bla.bla login head\@tail password whatever

Works like a charm,

Guido
