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 foo.bar.foobar.com. And yes, telling a user their name is the same as the email address is much nicer.

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.
