How can I pass a username of john smith to a pop3 server ? My pop server will only accept a username with one word and no spaces. Is there a control or escape character I can use to void the blank space ? Renaming the accounts is not an option.

May be you should try something like:

  john%20smith

(%20 is the hexa code of 'space')

"?" will do it... Just like in DOS 6.22 and above...

The "_" and the "." are the most common characters to insert for a "space".

John.Smith
Smith.John

What POP server are you running (Exchange, or something in UNIX perhaps)?

Did you try specifying the name in quotes?

Example: "John Smith"
