    Dear all,

    if I have an unsername containing "@", this does not get transferd when using
    autotype - e.g., username is name@host.com, antotype enters namehost.com.

    I'm using version 3.07 - any chance to have autotype working?

    I appreciate any tips. (I'm using this on a company computer, so updating may
    be difficult - I'd prefer a workaround, but will consider having IT upgrade it
    if that's the only way.)

    Best,

    Pit

    V3.07 is very very old - just over 4 years! V3.25 is the current version and I
    have just tried autotype with an "@ " symbol and it works fine for me (Vista
    32-bit). Note: Windows 2000 is not supported by this release only Windows XP
    and later.

    I know that Company PCs are hard to upgrade (and for good reason) but you may
    be able to download the zipped bin file (http://sourceforge.net/projects/pass
    wordsafe/files/passwordsafe/3.25/pwsafe-3.25-bin.zip/download)
    and extract it into any new directory and try it for yourself. If
    OK, then you can go the official route of getting your IT Department to use
    the exe or msi file to 'properly' install it and replace your very old
    version.

    if you can't download zip files or extract them yourself, then I am afraid the
    only solution is via your IT Department and upgrading to the latest version.
