too much linux stuff for me to learn
The problem as you saw with your test is not the server, your server is working properly the only reason you cannot authenticate and send mail is because the windows mail client you are using is brain dead, if you want to continue using windows mail then talk to Microsoft to help you fix the client, our use something else.

But your server is fine as you can see that when you connect to it via telnet you can authenticate.

The problem is the client NOT the server.

Ooo, better

I will test some other client then.. maybe outlook on windows xp on my other pc and i might install thunderbird and test with it too, then i reply here...


Just a question, this is edit msg

Is this ok for dovecot...? It is different then in that guide because it didn't work before

auth default {
  # Space separated list of wanted authentication mechanisms:
  #   plain login digest-md5 cram-md5 ntlm rpa apop anonymous gssapi
  mechanisms = plain login
and this in dovecot-sql config

default_pass_scheme = PLAIN-MD5

And one more thing about postfix i noticed, it says no tls in logs, but i have created certificates and path is ok

smptpd_tls_cert_file = /etc/ssl/server/mail/smtpd.crt
smtpd_tls_key_file = /etc/ssl/server/mail/smtpd.key
smtpd_tls_CAfile = /etc/ssl/server/mail/cacert.pem
this is from log: warning: No server certs available. TLS won't be enabled
