What do you mean "during the install a user.id was created"?  I have seen a
user.id created during the configuration of the client -- if the person
doing the configuration chooses that the client will not be connected to
the server.  I don't think I've ever seen a user.id created during the
install process.  Does your pc guy always produce a user.id when he
installs, or did it only happen this one time?

Our pc guy just did a Notes Client 6.5.1 fresh install on a new pc for an
existing Notes user.

During the install a user.id was created and placed in the data directory.

Then the pc guy was finishing the install via the connection wizard.

At one point he was asked to authenticate and since the registered users'
id file didn't exist on the new pc, the user.id file (containing a default
password) was used to authenticate with the server and up came the user's
mail. We found this to be somewhat of a security issue and I would like to
know how/if the user.id file can be excluded from the install?
