Bug Description

The email-address textfield shown in the login dialog could use textinput property hints like being an email field the @ symbol and .com can be shown in the keyboard. Also email-address are nouns generally and don't usually start with Capitals.

Textfield [1] provides a property called "inputMethodHints" which allows for setting these hints.

The hints I would use for the email-address field are the following,
- Qt.ImhNoPredictiveText
- Qt.ImhEmailCharactersOnly
