I figured it out on my own. It is actually a swiss keyboard and I configured my Imac for a German one. After reconfigureing it for Schweiz, it worked. thanks anyway
Expert:  Ashik replied 6 years ago. that case, you can change the Keyboard layout to German. Goto System Preferences and open Language and Text. Go to the "Input Sources" and select "German" from the list of languages. This should change the Keyboard layout and you can use your German Keyboard and i hope you can write the @ letter.
