It looks like you're trying to put all the information into the Real Name field, rather than just your real name. It will ask you for each of those bits of info in turn. A session should look similar to this Real Name: Jeff Rudichuck Comment: Sys Admin Email Address:
>I have tried to enter the name a varity of ways and always get the "Invalid
>character in name" error. I have in the past done this successfully, but
>for some unkown reason I now get this error.
>Please CC me on your response as I am not on the mailing list.
