I am getting an illegal white space error when sending email Is there something wrong

I am getting an "illegal white space" error when sending email. Is there something wrong?

This problem stems from your login to Webmail. If you login to Webmail with a trailing whitespace in your userid (using spaces after your username) you will authenticate and be able to view your mail because the whitespace is trimmed off for the IMAP transactions. However, when you try to send or forward messages the username *including* the trailing whitespace is put in the 'From' line. It is likely that you have your browser cache your username on the login screen, so you may have to clear all that out to correct the problem.
