SBC and Yahoo have teamed up to provide Yahoo services,
including messaging. Users using that have an @ sign
in their account/login name.
Can this be supported for logging into Yahoo messaging?

examples:
username@pacbell.net
username@sbcglobal.net
username@somebell.net

Thanx

    this shouldn't be too hard to support.

    Re-categorizing as Feature request since we consciously do not support @ in yahoo screen names.
