i enjoied FileZilla untill today.

to connect to this host. unknown syntax is the error.
he will axcept the @ only in use with "user:pass@". but
that is not the way i need. maybe you can correct this
in a newer version.

how can a @ be possibly in your host adress? the host adress
is a domain like or with a subdomain or an ip adress like but I as
far as I know an @ is not possible.

stuff like is used for
web browsers to submit all necessary data but this is a link
and not a host name.

this is normal when you create sub ftp accounts for ppl in

this is from its walk thru

FTP Account Maintenance
When logging into the ftp server please use the username
exactly as it appears below. If the username includes a "@",
make sure to include it when logging in. Example:
Use "john@…" and not "john".

no mabey this is a ProFTP feature, and the web server you
are using does not support it

As already mentioned below: An @-character is not allowed as part of a hostname. It is used if a given link should contain a user name or a user name/password combination, but even then it is not part of the host.

Closing this bug report as it is not a bug.
