fetchmail +virtual domain on ISP mail server.

I am setting up fetchmail on a linux server. This particular ISP requires as the username and then the regular password for the user. When creating the .fetchmailrc file the way I normally do on other ISP's, I run in to this problem.

poll proto pop3
user "", with password 12345, is "bob" here;

now when i go to run the fetchmail program in daemon mode, this is the error that I get in the log file.

fetchmail: starting fetchmail 6.2.0 daemon
fetchmail: Authorization failure on
fetchmail: Query status=3 (AUTHFAIL)
fetchmail: sleeping at Wed 11 Feb 2004 02:59:24 PM EST

Its faily obvious that the problem is fetchmail is putting the on the end of the username making it instead of The problem is, I have tried may different server options, but can not seem to get it to work.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I should be doing. Many thanks in advance.
