Using '@' in user name with "mount_smbfs"

I am stumped as to how I can accomplish using a user name with an '@'
in it with the "mount_smbfs" command/

Assuming a user name of: user at, how would I get it accepted
by the mount_smbfs command.

/usr/sbin/mount_smbfs -N -f 0644 -U me -W WORKGROUP //user at $HOME/Win-Pictures

I have tried both single and double quotation marks, but that fails.
