Depends on the receiver. The syntax is <user>@<host>:<port>. When using standard ports, you don't
need <port> (defaults to 5060). <host> is either domain or IP. Some soft- and especially
hardphones demand for a <user> while others don't. The AVM Fritzbox is much more special as it
only calls callees with a SRV record. But often <ip> only works.

But there's one special case in Ekiga. Alphanumeric addresses are interpreted as "sip:" while
numeric-only addresses are interpreted as ENUM addresses.
