OK, well i disabled the smtpd_tl_auth_only line.

And now whenever i try to connect via say outlook express on a client 
machine...

I check the box that says, "my outgoing server requires 
authentication", and i do get the password prompt, however whichever 
login/password i try to use it gets rejected, over and over and over again...


any suggestions?
