You don't have to use

as the username in your
directory. Just use 'name' instead, but tell SOGo to use email address
for the UID (UIDFieldName in GNUstepDefaults) so that your imap login
will work also. Cyrus also supports using 'name' style UID that will
translate over to email address-style use on system using Cyrus-SASL's
canon_user plug-in.
