Default postfix/smtpd[3112]: connect from unknown ERROR on mail.log

Hi to all, im a newbie on this Forum.
Will appreciate all help and assistance on my problem.

I setupped a mail server and i can receive mail on my domain, But cannot send email from any other domains. I followed the "Howto: ISP-style Email Server..." by Christoph Haas.

##my postconf -n
alias_database = hash:/etc/aliases
alias_maps = hash:/etc/aliases
append_dot_mydomain = no
biff = no
broken_sasl_auth_clients = yes
config_directory = /etc/postfix
content_filter = smtp-amavis:[]:10024
inet_interfaces = all
mailbox_size_limit = 0
mydestination =,, localhost
myhostname =
mynetworks =
myorigin = /etc/mailname
receive_override_options = no_address_mappings
recipient_delimiter = +
relayhost =
smtp_tls_session_cache_database = btree:${queue_directory}/smtp_scache
smtpd_banner = $myhostname ESMTP $mail_name (Debian/GNU)
smtpd_recipient_restrictions = permit_mynetworks,permit_sasl_authenticated,reject _unauth_destination
smtpd_sasl_auth_enable = yes
smtpd_sasl_path = private/auth
smtpd_sasl_type = dovecot
smtpd_tls_auth_only = yes
smtpd_tls_cert_file = /etc/ssl/certs/postfix.pem
smtpd_tls_key_file = /etc/ssl/private/postfix.pem
smtpd_tls_session_cache_database = btree:${queue_directory}/smtpd_scache
smtpd_use_tls = yes
virtual_alias_maps = mysql:/etc/postfix/,mysql:/etc/postfix/
virtual_gid_maps = static:5000
virtual_mailbox_domains = mysql:/etc/postfix/
virtual_mailbox_maps = mysql:/etc/postfix/
virtual_transport = dovecot
virtual_uid_maps = static:5000

When i try to use MS outlook and send email from outside my home network, to 3 recipients at different domains, it wont send and has an error message that: "...- Sending reported error (0x800CCC80) : None of the authentication methods supported by this client are supported by your server"

##my mail.log
dovecot: pop3-login: Login: user=<>, method=PLAIN, rip=, lip=
Jun 30 19:57:30 hostname postfix/smtpd[3112]: warning: hostname verification failed: Name or service not known

Jun 30 19:57:30 hostname dovecot: POP3( Disconnected: Logged out top=0/0, retr=0/0, del=0/15, size=101512

Im not yet technically knowledgeable in troubleshooting this kind of problem and i am working for this 3 days i a roow but to no avail. What do you think is the cause of the problem??.....Thanks in advance!
