You should see errors in your mail logs telling you the problem. Take a look at your mail logs and post the errors and I will take a look at them. Also if you could post your main.cf file.

--- I used this article the first time I set up postfix with mysql:

Looks like AUTH is missing

make telnet localhost telnet localhost 25 and type EHLO
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
EHLO
250-AUTH LOGIN CRAM-MD5 PLAIN
250-AUTH=LOGIN CRAM-MD5 PLAIN
250-PIPELINING
250 8BITMIME

250-AUTH LOGIN CRAM-MD5 PLAIN etc is needed for many logins these days

But maybe its something else.

I just had that problem just 2 days ago and that was the problem.
