Re: using emacs/efs with@ in username

If the problem is really the "at" sign (which I don't think it is), try 
doing:

C-x C-f /path/to/user TAB

and emacs should type in the 'at' sign for you (given that you don't 
have other files in the same subdir which start with "user" with some 
other character immediately after).

I suspect that the problem is that you created files with names like 
"/address@hidden@domain.com:/file.html" which means that emacs thinks 
that "/address@hidden@domain.com:/" is a subdirectory.  If so, get 
around that by putting a backslash ('\') in front of each slash 
character ('/') when opening the file.

If this doesn't fix it for you, do an "ls -al" on the files in question 
and send the output to us.
