Description

Many https services use email address as a user name. This cannot be used directly in QGIS as the "@" character not properly encoded when sent to the server

For example the user name "" must be entered as "dave%40phased.co.uk" to work. This is not very user friendly.

I suspect the same is true for the password field.
