Thanks for the responses.

This response from Robert Laing sounds like exactly what happens during 
the install.

<Snip>

If an ID exists in the NAB, during the install the client will detach the
ID file from the NAB and save it locally with the default name of user.id
-- the password associated with this ID would be the password assigned 
when
the user was created.

If an ID does not exist in the NAB, an ID file must be provided when the
client initially connects to the server.  If no ID file is provided during
installation, there can be no connection to the server.

<End Snip>

Patrick - I'm thinking this is the first time it's happened. It hasn't 
been brought to my attention before.

I guess there is a 'security' hole here since any user's mail file could 
be 'configured', and the user.id file imported from the NAB with a default 
password (from the user registration) can be used to access the mail file.
