POP3 Problems

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')

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

"?" 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"
