Default Perfect Ubuntu server 6.0.6 - Cannot send mail

I think I followed the instructions carefully. I did everything but the ispconfig setup. I can retrieve email from imap account no problem. But when I try to send I get the password prompt in thunderbird again, the password that I type is not excepted. below is the log
Jun 28 00:54:04 svr1 postfix/smtpd[21188]: connect from unknown[]
Jun 28 00:54:04 svr1 postfix/smtpd[21188]: setting up TLS connection from unknown[]
Jun 28 00:54:04 svr1 postfix/smtpd[21188]: TLS connection established from unknown[]: TLSv1 with cipher DHE-RSA-AES256-SHA (256/256 bits)
Jun 28 00:54:17 svr1 postfix/smtpd[21188]: warning: SASL authentication failure: Password verification failed

Almost got it working, any ideas would be great.

Are you sure you use the correct username and password?
Is saslauthd running?
What's the output of
telnet localhost 25
and then
ehlo localhost
