Description

In the OpenVPN Remote Access Server Setup Wizard, when trying to input a valid email, "The following input errors were detected:
Please limit Certificate field names to only the following characters: A-Z, a-z, space, underscore, and dash."

Upon removal of any input in E-mail field: "Please enter all information for the new Certificate Authority."

Cannot Add new CA on this screen.

Must be something else than email, that message is for country/state/city/organization.

In light of #7540 all of that validation probably does need to be revisited soonish. There are relatively few restrictions now, the wizard will need to catch up.

After inspecting the code, this was a bit easier than I expected it to be, so I pushed a fix.

The wizard now allows the user to use any characters they want in certificate fields and escapes them properly before creating the CA/Certs, just like the certificate manager does directly.
