 Jabber servers can be defined using SRV records.
 (http://prosody.im/doc/dns, http://wiki.xmpp.org/web/SRV_Records)

 e.g. the nic m...@example.com can have xmpp servers that do not listen on
 the example.com servers but on xmpp.example.com. These would be defined in
 a SRV record, see links.

 It seems the client does not check for these records, as it tries to
 connect to example.com directly.

 current workaround is to define xmpp.example.com as server manually in the
 advanced options.
