VS08 login control - allow user to use email vs. username to login

McGurk1 asked
Last Modified: 2012-08-14
I have a site that uses the login control found in VS08.  However, those I created the site for would like users to have the ability to login using their email address instead of the username.  From researching, I have found that simply requiring the username to be an email can cause issues.  One site I found referenced a 4GuysFromRolla article but that did not fully really address using an email.  Does anyone know how to do this or where I can find some good code examples?
