oh i see there might be a misunderstanding here. I would not use an @
within the username, as @ usually separates the username and Domain part
/ UPN Suffix. But you can set company.com as the domain part for the
user, so for the user his login looks like user.name at company.com, but
would also work with NT-Style COMPANY\user.name .
