Dear Mark,
I went through  catalina.log and catalina.out  as you mentioned but I could not find such things related to my problem. Only I need is to to register new user to login into DSpace. The error I mentioned earlier on where "contact us" relate to DSpace administrator who configured and installed system. Here in this case I configured and installed so my email address is given as administrative email address.

That message can be confusing.  Where it says, "contact us", what it
means is that the user should contact *you*, the person in charge of
the application.  The message is for end users, and seems to be meant
to be soothing rather than detailed.

I'd suggest looking in the servlet container's log files for more
information.  In the case of Tomcat, catalina.log and catalina.out are
the files I would inspect.  If you find something related to the
problem, but it is unclear or you are uncertain how to proceed, we're
all here to help.

I find it about 15 lines below the heading "XMLUI SPECIFIC
CONFIGURATIONS", but this is just a Properties file, so you can code
it anywhere.  This is probably not related to your present problem,
