    That's not a valid URL because of the @ in the username - you're trying to give it a port of "Meh@gmail.google.com". You likely need to URL encode the @ in the username, though that may not work (and the URL format for that may not be possible).

    Encoding doesn't work at all. Still giving me the invalid url speel. How is this not a bug? the @ is valid because that's the user name.
     
  4. If the user name is an email then you can not use that syntax because the @ tells what site to use the login credentials at.

    http://login:pass@url

    Well, I was wrong with my last statement (I can only blame myself, and probably my Sun thin client). Encoding the @ does pass the regex filter. However, XenForo gives me a 401 when I preview the feed. When using Chrome or FF with the @ 'encrypted' (%40), same thing occurs and I have to use the @ sign. Is there no way around this besides manually editing the DB and hoping for the best?
