Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 596566
Use full address as username for hotmail

auth error shown
Description of problem:
The first time wizard automatically fills the details when one introduces the email address, however it sets the usermane as the part before the @, which for hotmail produces and autentication error (see screenshot attached). I guess it's because hotmail (and others at live.com) requires full addres as id.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have a hotmail account
2. Fill it in wizard
3. Hit send/receive
Thanks for a bug report. There is opened an upstream bug , where are discussed also other accounts. There was done some development in the area, though not for 2.30, but for 2.31, so maybe after that finished they'll take care of this too. Meanwhile you can workaround the issue by fixing a username. Please see the upstream bug  for further updates.
