Email Addresses as usernames


Is it possible to use email addresses as usernames with qmail-sql?

Assume my email address and username are both eric@xxxxxxxxxx, and a
login value of 'eric@xxxxxxxxxx' is in the passwd table and

	checkpassword-sql query finds a record: 

		WHERE login='eric@xxxxxxxxxx' AND virtual_host=''

	qmail-getpw query does not find a record: 

		WHERE login='eric' AND virtual_host=''

I assume that qmail-getpw gets the login value from the mailbox part of
the email address? If so, is it possible to use Email Addresses as
usernames with qmail-sql? 

Thanks for the great software, Eric
