Two things with this:
- - I can enter a new password for the siteadmin user, and it is shown correctly in the table (using phpmyadmin 2.10 from unstable, MySQL server 5.0.38 on an ethc system). But all login attempts fail.
- - The redirection in case a siteadmin user exists and after successfully entering a new password point to "/index.php". This fails on all installations that don't put vexim into the docroot of the used webserver. Changing the destination to "index.php" does the intended redirection.

Args. Txh for not shouting RTFM :D
Anyway - I'd like to suggest to put this into /usr/share/doc/vexim/README.Debian as well, because this is Debian-specific, and I believe many look there first instead of invoking man.

Well, I'll try my best, but since I don't know PHP or the debian packaging system (apart from having a rather extensive job and three kids ;) ), I refrain from really joining. But I will keep testing and reporting in case I run into problems...
