Postfix Authentication Failed


I have SuSE 9.1 running with Thunderbird 1.0.2
At times my email downloads fine - if I send something to myself for example but at times email sent by others is pulled of the server (disappears from webmail) but thunderbird tells me there is no new mail.
At one stage I killed fetchmail (fetchmail -q as su) but I can't find how to stop it starting on reboot. This helped for a little while
Looking in my /var/log/mail I get the following:

Jul 3 14:53:28 localhost postfix/smtp[8345]: connect to mail.bigpond.com[144.140.90.10]: server refused mail service (port 25)

However I know the username and pwd are right and the server name is right.
Following is the result of postconf:

How is your firewall settings? Do you have any third party filtering agent..
Also, what is the output of "netstat -nap | grep :25" ?
Looks like, connection is refused by postfix, make sure it is listening port 25.
If you could post master.cf smtp socket settings, it might be useful..

Okay, in your main.cf you have:
mynetworks = 127.0.0.0/8 [::1]/128
mynetworks_style = subnet

I believe when you specify network_style as subnet, you need to include external ip parameter inyour mynetworks too. For example, I have:
127.0.0.0/8 >>>>>for local mail
xx.xx.xx.xx/28 >>>for the whole world
10.0.0.0/24>>>>>for internal mail..

Try settings these parameter according to your numbers to see if it would work..Let's cross our fingers so it would..
