getting a Auth token

I'm trying to get an auth token to fetch data from the API. I'm following the instructions here: https://groups.io/api#authentication-1 however when I execute the command:
$ curl "https://api.groups.io/v1/login" -u <my-username>: -d "email=<my-email>&password=<my-pwd>"
I get:
{"object":"error","type":"unauthorized","extra":""}
What I'm doing wrong?

Cheers,
Valerio

You need to specify an API token instead of <my-username> in your example. While the API is in alpha, you can use the token 123456.
