Default 535 5.7.8 Error: authentication failed: generic failure

Hello to everyone

I have a remote server (VPS) with Ubuntu 8.04 and ISPConfig 2.x. I've followed the Perfect Server Guide, and it works but i can send emails from thunderbird or any email client, well, y tryed to "auth login" for telnet passing username and password a code64, but i can auth neither. I get only this error:

535 5.7.8 Error: authentication failed: generic failure

But the weird is that i can connect using web mail like roundcube

I think that my problem is not with port 25 i dont know what i can do for fix that error, and it is very importan for me because i want put my website with a contact form using the phpmailer class....

I need help.

Thank you very much to every one
