Username format for Exchange server mail service

When I install the Internet mail service Exchange server that is running on a Windows 2000 Server-based computer, I get this error when authenticating the service account password: :Logon failure: Unknown user name or bad password. ID No. 0xc002052e." The password I am using on my server is the same that I am trying to use for the service account. (The username format is techinnovations.bzadministrator).
The actual format you want to use is domain\user (e.g., techinnovations\bzadministrator). It looks like you are using a dot (.) instead of a backslash (\).
