Ok. This is another change from 2.5.175 to 2.5.205. Trimname now
has two "options" (bits). The first Trimname=1 ONLY trims spaces
off the front/end of the name. The Second (trimname=2 or trimname=3)
parses out a domain from the name. In this case, the domain\user is
considered a domain, just like user@domain. Set trimname to 3 and it
should do what you want.
