Postfix - SASL LOGIN authentication failed

Hi all!

I'm trying to get my postfix working on my VPS (virtual private server) with Fedora Core 4,

I can receive emails using outlook express but can't send, I get login box pop-up like the user and password I enter are wrong, (pretty sure they are correct)
using SquirrelMail I can send/receive
bellow is /var/log/maillog
Feb  1 15:32:15 m5-fedora4-04 postfix/smtpd[1690]: connect from[]
Feb  1 15:32:16 m5-fedora4-04 postfix/smtpd[1690]: warning:[]: SASL LOGIN authentication failed
Feb  1 15:32:16 m5-fedora4-04 postfix/smtpd[1690]: disconnect from[]
any help is appreciated!
