      Description

      I installed a new DSpace server without much issue.

      During the create-administrator step I made a mistake: I accidentally hit Enter-Enter past the admin email. I entered the other info correctly. The admin account was created successfully, just without an email address.

      Once DSpace was up and running (using xmlui), I tried logging in as the admin with a blank email field and the admin password I entered – I was logged in successfully. (Not sure if this is the behavior you want).

      I attempted to go to my Profile page to correct the email address, but the profile page was throwing an error – something about characters and XML, I assume because the email field was coming in empty. This is probably not expected behavior.

      I was able to get around this by getting into psql directly as the dspace user and doing a simple update:

      update eperson set email='foo@bar.edu' where eperson_id=1;

      Now the login with the new email works, along with the Profile page.
