Username Containing @ Symbol

Hello,

I'm trying to setup Rmail. My service provider has given me the username "address@hidden". So, my username has the @ symbol in it. I can't figure out how to make Rmail & Movemail work with this. If I write: (setq rmail-primary-inbox-list '("imap://address@hidden:address@hidden")) .... Then Rmail thinks that everything from the first @ is the name of the mailserver.

I've tried this too, which also doesn't work:
(setq user-login-name "address@hidden"
      rmail-remote-password "pass"
      rmail-primary-inbox-list '("imap://actual-imap-server.com"))

This problem doesn't affect sending mail with smtpmail, that works. Other mail programs work for receiving mail.

I've tried both POP and IMAP since the server supports both.
