Users with \ in their nicks

I am having a problem with users who have \ in their nick. When I send them a /msg, it gives me an error:
Dec26[23:36:30] [shocked:pinpoint] No such user

It replaces the \ with a :. However, I can /notice the users fine without a problem. The problem occurs when I even do a /raw PRIVMSG theirnick.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

And you have checked that this does not happend on mIRC without the PnP script also? .. in order to verify it is a PnP issiue.
(i no longer use mIRC as I no longer have windows, so I can not check myself.)

I have no issues with this. I tested with 3 nicks:
[22:28] * Your nick is now \s
[22:36] * Your nick is now tes\a
[22:36] * Your nick is now test\

and I had no problems neither with simple mIRC nor with PnP.
mIRC version: 6.21

Maybe it is a problem with a different mIRC version. What version are you using?

I'd make sure it's not the server (or bouncer if used) acting up, following the failure of /raw PRIVMSG. Either by trying another network, or these simple steps:

1. Enable debug: /debug on
2. Send a private message to a nickname that gives the error.
3. Disable debug: /debug off
4. Examine debug.log to see what was sent to (->) and from (<-) the server. The colon or the backslash?

Good luck.
