Default SASL authentication failure

Hello,

I'm running a ISPConfig 3 server on xen debian lenny. Everything works perfect except sending emails remotely from eg. Thunderbird. I'm using the same login details as for imap. However authhentication fails.

Post of /var/log/mail.log:
Code:
Sep 26 14:42:02 xtra postfix/smtpd[7230]: warning: SASL authentication failure: cannot connect to saslauthd server: No such file or directory
Sep 26 14:42:02 xtra postfix/smtpd[7230]: warning: SASL authentication failure: Password verification failed
Sep 26 14:42:02 xtra postfix/smtpd[7230]: warning: xx.rev.stofanet.dk[xx]: SASL PLAIN authentication failed: generic failure
Sep 26 14:42:02 xtra postfix/smtpd[7230]: warning: SASL authentication failure: cannot connect to saslauthd server: No such file or directory
Sep 26 14:42:02 xtra postfix/smtpd[7230]: warning: xx.rev.stofanet.dk[xx]: SASL LOGIN authentication failed: generic failure
I think the problem is similar to http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/showthread.php?t=8242 but the softlink solution mentioned doesn't do any difference.
