Question about usernames with an @

 I am using LDAP for authentication and my uid attribute is in the form of:
john.smith at  I want to use this to authenticate, but I am having some
problems.  I came across some info via google search, but no real answers.
I wanted to search the archives, but it looks like they are gone??
Anyway, I am using SASL 2.1.18 and Cyrus IMAP 2.2.3 with the following config:

ldap_auth_method: bind
ldap_servers: ldap://
ldap_search_base: ou=Users,dc=domain,dc=com
ldap_use_sasl: no
ldap_method: simple

configdirectory: /var/cyrus/imap
partition-default: /var/cyrus/spool/imap
admins: cyrus
sievedir: /var/cyrus/sieve
sendmail: /usr/sbin/sendmail
hashimapspool: true
sasl_pwcheck_method: saslauthd
sasl_mech_list: PLAIN LOGIN
virtdomains: yes
altnamespace: yes
unixhierarchysep: yes

Some of the uid's though, do not have an @ sign and I wanted to handle that case
as well.. Is this possible?
