I can get this ftp.exe  from the emacswiki to work in a dos window but not
through Emacs.  I read:

331 User myusername okay, need password.

But this is not really correct since my user name itself needs an @ sign
in it and this interferes with the parsing of the entire argument to C-x
C-f , including a second @ sign after the user name.
Is there some way around this problem?

Thanks,
Ed
