Maybe its not a terminal issue maybe plowdown will replace it by %40

try following

echo "@"

it should return @ in the terminal

if its like this then plowdown does the conversion to %40.

It's the plowdown code which is converting the "@" to a "%40".

At line 1150 of the file /usr/local/share/plowshare4/core.sh in the version I've just downloaded is the line:

    USER=$(echo "${AUTH%%:*}" | uri_encode_strict)

That takes your username (the "mymail@gmail.com") and converts all non-alphanumeric characters to their "safe" equivalents.  It's the same process which converts spaces in URLs to %20, and the "://" in "http://aa.com" to "%3a%2f%2f".  Here it is converting "@" to "%40".

To avoid this, you'll need to edit /usr/local/share/plowshare4/core.sh and either change the above line to

    USER="${AUTH%%:*}"

or remove line 1032 (in the uri_encode_strict function):

     s/@/%40/g

I'd prefer the first fix.
