Default SMTP authentication problem

Ok guys I am using Debian as per the perfect setup guide and have a slight problem when send mail from a mail client (ie Outlook Express) send mail from the webmail appliacation is fine.

I have enabled the "Server requires authentication" but keep getting asked to enter my credentials even though I know the ones I am using are corrent (web24_bob with the corrent password)

I get the following in my mail.log file


WebServ01:/var/log# tail mail.log
