Unhappy Virtual Users ... (CentOS 5.1) can receive but cant send!

hello everyone!

I have followed this tutorial:

After finish it, i just add in mysql the domain and a user. no transport/forwards.

Then i send from the server console a mail to the account. (using mail cmd)

Then i configure thunderbird to use the account, and with no problem it works, and i get my message (so i'm assuming receiving is working ok).

But when i try to send a mail i always get password error

i've checked /var/log/messages:

Mar  6 05:26:37 retail saslauthd[2771]: do_auth         : auth failure: [user=trium] [service=smtp] [realm=example.com] [mech=pam] [reason=PAM auth error]
I've checked /var/log/mailog:

Mar  6 06:02:35 retail postfix/smtpd[3330]: connect from HugoRodrigue-PC.mshome.net[]
Mar  6 06:02:40 retail postfix/smtpd[3330]: warning: SASL authentication failure: Password verification failed
Mar  6 06:02:40 retail postfix/smtpd[3330]: warning: HugoRodrigue-PC.mshome.net[]: SASL PLAIN authentication failed: authentication failure
Mar  6 06:02:42 retail postfix/smtpd[3330]: warning: HugoRodrigue-PC.mshome.net[]: SASL LOGIN authentication failed: authentication failure
Mar  6 06:02:44 retail postfix/smtpd[3330]: disconnect from HugoRodrigue-PC.mshome.net[]

I make everything without any apparently error, the only different thing from the tutorial was the output of the telnet command (Page 5 - Instruction 14):

[root@retail log]# telnet localhost 25
Connected to localhost.localdomain (
Escape character is '^]'.
220 retail.example.com ESMTP Postfix
ehlo localhost
250-SIZE 10240000
250 DSN

Anyone have this issue?
What can i do to get more info about this problem?
