vpopmail auth error

I recently set up qmail on my server with vpopmail and mysql authentication. So far I can receive messages fine, and I can connect to courier-imap well to receive mail. However, when I try to send mail through qmail-smtpd, the authentication is rejected. In the mysql logs I see lines such as below:

| 28 | jayson | password | | jayson | | vchkpw-smtp: vpopmail user not found jayson@: | 1124730713 | 1 |

The domain I have set up is with my external dns name, so technically there is no user (or domain for that matter) at jayson@: I'm assuming that if I would connect to port 25 on my router from an external box, I could send just fine, but this does me no good if I'm ssh tunneling the port to send from a remote computer or trying to send from the localhost. Is there any way I can get this to work, or do I have to add a domain for localhost and mirror all of my users there?

Thanks much!

Nevermind, looks like the imap daemon accepts logins of jayson just fine, but the qmail-smtpd service requires fqdn logins such as to accept the authentication.
