Commenting out the following if-then-else as Nate recommended works in
remoteuser.py works to achieve this goal:
#if not environ[ 'HTTP_REMOTE_USER' ].count( '@' ):
# if self.maildomain is not None:
# environ[ 'HTTP_REMOTE_USER' ] += '@' + self.maildomain
# title = "Access to Galaxy is denied"
# message = """
# Galaxy is configured to authenticate users
via an external
# method (such as HTTP authentication in
Apache), but only a
# username (not an email address) was provided by the
# upstream (proxy) server. Since Galaxy
usernames are email
# addresses, a default mail domain must be set.</p>
# <p>Please contact your local Galaxy administrator. The
# variable <code>remote_user_maildomain</code>
must be set
# before you may access Galaxy.
# return self.error( start_response, title, message )
So far in regular Galaxy use everything works no problem, people's
email addresses are their usernames and email services work in Windows
as your username is your email nickname.
