Whatever your computer is configured to use as a DNS server (typically
something like a home router) does not support a specific type of DNS
record called a "SRV" (short for SeRVice) record, which the XMPP protocol uses.

Your options are either:
   * Fix the DNS server (fairly vague, I know :/)
   * Set the Connect Server account option for your account to
'' (and live with certificate mismatch errors)

For more information, see
(and the question immediately following that one)
