SASL is still causing pain

    The system - a fresh installation of onieric and ISPConfig3 done by following Falko's superb "how to" and then his workaround for the SASL issues.

    From within the local network, mail can be sent and received normally via POP3 and SMTP and via squirrelmail. From a remote location squirrelmail and POP3 works fine, but not SMTP. Looking at mail.log shows the following

    PLAIN authentication failed: authentication failure
    LOGIN authentication failed: authentication failure
    And yes, the client mail readers(Thunderbird) are setup properly and with the correct password.

    So, I'm lost. No idea where to look and what to look at. Some help here would be really appreciated folks.

    Can you run
    telnet localhost 25
    and then type
    ehlo localhost
    What's the output?
