Shot in the dark, but try replacing the first at sign with a percent sign, then 
try the second or both.

That -used- to be a convention, and maybe they will honor it.

I remember the addresses with two at signs in an old network system ... best of 

Emacs - Not just a text editor, it's a way of life.

   Might you consider finding another ISP? That would be the ultimate
   way of voicing your complaint :)
