In the short term, would RLIKE help?

    "select ... from ... where name RLIKE '[0]*name@realm' ...;"

In the long term I would do several things;

 1. Clean the data BEFORE it gets into the table [ie: strip the LZs].
 2. Restructure the database to split the name into two halves:
    eg: "name" [the bit before the @] and domain [the bit after it].

Hope this helps...
