I copied the content of the failing mailbox into another mailbox with a 
name without dots:

	springsteen at

and the result is the same:

# sync_client -A -n bck -z -v

USER springsteen at
Error from do_user(springsteen at bailing out!

Instead, if I do:

# sync_client -n bck -z -v -u springsteen at

USER springsteen at

the program replicates as well and without any errors.

At this moment I don't have a normal replica server yet. I'll try...

Thank you very much
