You cannot have @ in the username because the full format for all SIP URI's is like this:
sip:<username>@<sip-domain>

It might be possible to have an auth id containing @, but it is best avoided. The display name can be different to the username and could potentially contain funny chars like @. You can use @ in the password too.

Who is suggesting that you should use @ in the username? Surely not a VoIP service provider.

Hi, Feptias!

Well unfortunately is it a voip service provider, in a small foreign country, that is giving me a username with @ in it. I dont think they have much experience with voip, but they are the only providers, so I dont have any choice. Can I do like this sip:<username@>@<sip-domain>

?

Best regards

Lasse

"Can I do it like this..." - I would say not because a URI containing two @ characters will be ambiguous. Surely this is a question to put to the foreign service provider!

Are you sure they aren't giving you the complete URI, with the @ symbol separating the user-id from the sip-domain? By the way, when I described the general format for a SIP URI above, the angle brackets are not part of the format, they were to identify the component parts of the URI. For example, if username is 1234567 and the sip-domain is foreign-service.com then the URI would be sip:1234567@foreign-service.com

The only trick I can think of would be to use percent encoding - it is explained quite nicely in wikipedia:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Percent-encoding

The percent-encoded version of @ is %40. This might work as I have seen it used in SIP messages between IP phones and SIP PBX's like Asterisk. So a username of fred@bloggs would be entered as fred%40bloggs. Give it a try.
