Hi Tom, These are the base strings with fictitious username, password and consumer key and so they will not pass through the validator. I have checked the actual base strings and they check-out ok.
Anyway, what I'm looking for is a definite yes or no as to whether email addresses-login is supported or not. Is there somewhere I could get this info?
