pilerimport IMAP username cannot contain spaces

Issue #952 closed
Bill Gaston created an issue

Using pilerimport with an IMAP account that contains a space in the username results in the error "login failed, server reponse: A1 BAD LOGIN Unexpected Extra arguments". Putting the username in single or double quotes does not resolve the issue. Workaround is to use double quotes inside of single quotes: e.g. pilerimport -i mailserver -u '"First Last"' -p 'password' -P 993

    I have a hard time understanding why a username needs whitespace inside. Anyway I believe this should be not a bug, rather a FAQ entry. If you agreed then I would add it to to FAQ, and close this issue.

    This is fine for the FAQ, since the extra quotes seems to resolve it. This particular IMAP account is a journal and doesn't have an email address, so the only way to login is with the full name, which of course includes a space.
