I have a web application configured with FBA and LDAP. It working as expected and users are able to login but they have to use their username not email address. What changes do I need to make to allow users to login using their email addresses? Following is the membership config:

<add name="LdapMember" 
        type="Microsoft.Office.Server.Security.LdapMembershipProvider, Microsoft.Office.Server, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c" 
        port="389" useSSL="false" 
        otherRequiredUserAttributes="sn,givenname,cn" />

I have tried adding the attributeMapUsername="userPrincipalName" and confirmed userPrincipalName is where we store email addresses. Any help will be much appreciated.
