Yes, just the bin directory.  No, it wouldn't prevent future use of
[EMAIL PROTECTED], those users would simply need to use the username
[EMAIL PROTECTED] instead of  And yes, telling a user
their name is the same as the email address is much nicer.

Very good--thanks. Will check my domains to if any are using
that format.  When recompiling vpopmail--I shoudl only  need to
delete the ~vpopmail/bin/ directory--right?

Thanks so much for such an easy solution. But then on further
thought it would prevent future use of an email address with
[EMAIL PROTECTED] which is not good. I'll just have to support
clients with a switch to the new usernames--not fun, but best.
It will sure be nice to tell people their username is their
email address--my legacy setup with a dot instead of @ is a
hassle for setup.
