Trying to authenticate email

Hi everyone! I'm taking the edX course on visualizing with Power BI. I'm currently doing a lab where I have to connect to a SQL database. Unfortunately, I entered my email as a username, and now it's appending it to the server name. I enter the server name and database as given on the lab site, and it tells me "Cannot open server "myemaildomain" requested by the login. The login failed." It doesn't even get to the username box any more. I've tried closing and reloading Power BI, running it as an admin, and even rebooting my machine- nothing worked. How do I fix this?



Edit: The course is well over now, but I'm leaving the topic open, because this is just a weird thing.
