Are usernames unique across all salesforce.com orgs?

Hello,

 

I am assuming that SFDC usernames are unique acorss all org.

 

That said, Is following scenario even possible ?

 

On a Personal Developer Edition Org I have a user name - john.smith@company.com 

on a Dev box (test.salesforce.com) for a client, I also have same username -  john.smith@company.com

 

Keep in mind I am not talking about the portal user name. These 2 are SFDC platform licensed users.

IIRC, the username namespace for production & sandbox are different, i.e. you can't have the same username on NA1 & NA2, or CS1 and CS2, but you can have the same username on NA1 & CS1.

User Name can not be duplicated.

Thanks Simon, this means usernames are not unique when you look at Production + Sandbox as a whole.

 

This clarifies my scenario which I just ran into.

 

I submitted a code quailty check request (SFDC code scanner) for a sandbox environment but it ended up running on my DE org because usernames are same in both org. The scanner only asks for username but there is no way to mention in the request that this is for sandbox or production org.
