SendEmail sending jiberish authentication.

Hi I recently installed sendEmail using apt-get because I want to be able to easily create cron jobs that will email me in the event of completion/error etc. and sendemail appeared to be by far the simplest method. however I keep getting error 535 incorrect authentication, I double and triple checked the credentials and decided to run the program in verbose mode to see if I could get any more out of it. here's what I got.

$ sendEmail -f -t -u test -m "Hello World" -s mail.mailserver.blah -xu username -xp password -v

Nov 04 11:52:02 invision-desktop sendEmail[3262]: INFO => Sending: AUTH PLAIN ZHZyQGludmlzaW9uY29tcHV0ZXJzLmNvbQBkdnJAaW52aXNpb25jb21wdXRlcnMuY29tAGQzNGQw, cmFsaXZl
Nov 04 11:52:02 invision-desktop sendEmail[3262]: ERROR => Received: 535 Incorrect authentication data

Notice the Red..... so my question is.... wth?

running Ubuntu Jaunty
