How can I remote desktop to a Windows 8 machine using an email address login?
If enter my username as email@example.com and leave the domain blank I will be taken to the Windows 8 login screen and receive the login error:
The username or password is incorrect. Try again.
When I press OK, the Windows 8 login screen will just show my username as myusername, and if I add @gmail.com I can login.
The next time I open a remote desktop connection the client has split my user name up into:
User name: myusername
This also doesn't allow me to directly login and I get the same authentication error.
How can I preserve my username as firstname.lastname@example.org and login directly?
I am using Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection Client for Mac 2.1.0 on OS X 10.8.4.
