This is a common case for some of providers to make login name = user's full
email. Thunderbird escapes '@' using URL rules, which makes connect impossible.
Outlook Express works fine.

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
Thank you for your help in this matter.

There is nothing to verify. '@' character is clearly replaced by '%' sequence in
the POP protocol log. It seems noone reading this bug db.

I do not use Thunderbird, because of this issue, so I am not interested
personally and so I'm not reactivating. Actually, I'm not interested in any mail
application anymore, because of Google Mail.
