It is all very confusing for my end users. It is a very foreign method of setting user names.
Thats the way most commercial ISP's do it. The largest german internet service providers use prefixes based on a client specific ID or username for FTP users. I've never seen a single ISP that uses email addresses for FTP accounts, as this will really confuse users when they have a @ in their username.

but it is confusing on why we get the option to change the settings.
The option is there to enable administrators that are aware of all implications that their change might cause to change it.
