I used to use Exodus (MSWindows) with settings:

Well it's kind of very easy. You really should open Kopete before asking this.

But since you are reading this just choose "Settings->Accounts->New->Next->Jabber->Next".
Fill your settings in the two existent tabs "Basic Setup" and "Connection".

I had mistakenly thought that the entry for Account Information in the Basic Setup had to be in the format <user> as I was informed in an error popup box.
Thanks for the encouragement! I eventually thought that the error box should have communicated the correct format as perhaps <user>@<jabberserverdomainname> After putting in the desired domain name it worked fine.
