Default Whoaoaoaoa, this is too wierd!

In my mail client, Outlook, I unchecked/disabled the Internet E-mail Settings/More Settings.../Outgoing Server/My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication setting and am now able to send mail.

Is this a security liability? And if so, how do I reconfigure the server to require authentication?

Default Additional information

I can now send email between internal accounts and domains hosted on my server, but when I attempt to send email outside, my server is returning a 554 5.7.1 <recipient@domain.***>: Relay access denied bounced mail message.

I sense we are getting close to a solution?

Followed the 11.10 Perfect server guide and had originally been getting the "no mechanism available" error but then followed help tutorial about that and installed SASL but now getting the above error.

What's the output of
Code:
ps aux | grep saslauthd
? Looks as if it isn't running.

Looks to me as if the -r switch is missing. What do you have in /etc/default/saslauthd?
