Sorry if this made it two times

Hi I am trying to get usernames with an @ symbol to work properly.

My postfix, saslauthd, and ldap all work properly. I used the Invoca rpms
of the 2.2.3 release.

In my /etc/imapd.conf
configdirectory: /var/lib/imap
partition-default: /var/spool/imap
admins: Administrator
sievedir: /var/lib/imap/sieve
sendmail: /usr/sbin/sendmail
hashimapspool: true
sasl_pwcheck_method: saslauthd
sasl_mech_list: PLAIN
tls_cert_file: /usr/share/ssl/certs/cyrus-imapd.pem
tls_key_file: /usr/share/ssl/certs/cyrus-imapd.pem
tls_ca_file: /usr/share/ssl/certs/ca-bundle.crt
virtdomains: yes

When I try to log in to the cyrus imap server it truncates the @....
portion of the login name i.e.

[robin at pdc]# telnet localhost 143
Connected to localhost.localdomain (
Escape character is '^]'.
* OK Cyrus IMAP4 v2.2.3-Invoca-RPM-2.2.3-4 server ready
. login robin at secretpass
. NO Login failed: authentication failure

[robin at pdc]# tail /var/log/ldap
Feb  8 12:30:34 pdc slapd[23259]: conn=280 op=1 SRCH base="dc=draftmail,dc=org" scope=2 filter="(uid=robin)"

Also when I deliver mail through lmtp via postfix cyrus writes the mailbox
out as

and using cyradm

[robin at pdc]# cyradm --user Administrator
localhost.localdomain> cm user.robin at
createmailbox: Invalid mailbox name
localhost.localdomain> cm user.test
localhost.localdomain> quit
