Yes, that is possible.
But SOGoForceExternalLoginWithEmail is used for loging into external
resources like SMTP and IMAP with full email address, not for logging
into SOGo :-)

You have to set UIDFieldName (or bindFields) in your SOGoUserSources
section to an/all LDAP field names a user can use to login.
This requires, that you have a field already with "username" in it.
