User doing new install of Notes Client has setup issue for a hosted domain after entering home server and user's ID name:
"User or server not found in Domino Directory."

This is a known issue with 6.x (I heard it was to be fixed but obviously, even in 6.5 it still exists.)

Workarounds:
1. Cancel setup and do manual setup creating location locally and using local id-file.
2. Copy and paste user's person document in Directory. Rename Username of copy to Jane Doe/Mindwatering instead of original host domain. Let user continue with normal setup. Once completed, remove other person record.

Note:
Make sure user accepts the cross certificate for Mindwatering, otherwise the local ECL will be hosed.
