Sync/Import adding periods to the sAMAccountName


Verified AD that the sAMAccountName is right. We have something like u001234x for the username, when it gets imported into Rocketchat it gets imported as u.001234.x.

Thoughts on what the issue may be? Since we have this integrated with email it is causing issues.

Have a look at this issue:
Workaround is to set UTF8_Names_Slugify to false in settings.
