SMTP auth.
I have installed ISPConfig 3.0.4 and Debian by following the tutorial "The Perfect Server Debian Squeeze (Debian 6.0) With BIND & Dovecot [ISPConfig 3]"
I have to tell that i completely love it. There haven't been any big problems with the installation, everything works fine.
But there is one problem. As i have read, smtp auth is on by default, but the thing is - i can receive e-mails from outside sources, but when i send them from server's squirrelmail, i get this error back to my inbox:

This is the mail system at host

As far as i undestood from the link, my ip adress is in a spammers list, and im unfortunately unable to send the mails until ill enable smtp auth.(that's what the suggest in the link) But here's the dilemma, as i mentioned earlier, all the sources say that smtp auth is on by default. So what should i do now? How i fix this problem?

You should check your config file from your webmail

This is in rouncubed

/ / SMTP username (if required) if you use% u as the username Roundcube
/ / Will use the current username for login
$ rcmail_config ['smtp_user'] = '% u';

/ / SMTP password (if required) if you use% p as the password Roundcube
/ / Will use the current user's password for login
$ rcmail_config ['smtp_pass'] = '% p';

in your webmail you have to look

maybe this helped you
