How to handle special characters like "@" and "&" submitted on forms to SQL Server 2005

Hi.  We are using ASP forms to let users sign up for a service and create their own usernames and passwords.  Some record submits are bombing apparently from users entering characters like "@" and "&" in text fields before they press submit.  Should I be handling these characters a certain way?  The submit process works fine except for when users create a username that is an email address or put a company name that contains "&".  We know this because the users call my client's customer support when they have trouble signing up on my client's website.

Thanks for your help.
