How do you mention a user in a work item?

What is the the syntax for mentioning a user in a work item so that they get informed that they have been mentioned?

In the user profile you can select a "Messages @Me" option to inform you by email when you get mentioned in a work item. However, I'm not sure how to trigger this? Do you have to specify the user's name exactly as specified in the user profile, use their email, prefix something with the at symbol "@" or something else?

It's the User ID prefixed with @, e.g. @zrlpas. The Eclipse UI provides
code completion for this, and the User ID can also be seen in the user
hovers.

Is the same method used for ldap authenticated userids too? E.g. @my_name@domain.com

I've answered my own question :-) If you are using ldap authentication then you specify the user in the same way @userid but in this case the userid will be an email address, e.g. @first.surname@domain.com.
