I just loaded the turnkey ejabber into VMWARe and I have trouble as user try to create their own account from the speeqe web page.

The page require an email address to be specified and when the email address is specified correctly I have the following error message :


[u'Invalid characters in username.']

I tried to just put for email the first part of the email eg. without @ and this time I have just the following showing in red :

Any one know what this is?

Just downloaded the appliance, booted and trying to create the first user.

Get this error no matter what I want the username to be.
