it was myself having the problems. In any case, if you have the time to
give also a try with Bill's HOWTO I'm more than happy to contribute with
my little but unfortunately, unsuccessful experience. Could well be that
I was doing something wrong and couldn't figure it out!

8.12 lets you be sure that you're using TLS before it does the
SMTP-AUTH (there's no mandate of order - TLS before auth - in the
RFCs), so you could use cleartext passwds safely.
Ideally, you'd generate CERTs for the laptop and use that trusted/
known certificate for proof that it's you.
I don't know where setup of that is documented.
I posted a HOWTO a week or so ago. Somebody else was having
trouble w/ the instructions. Check the archives. Maybe somebody
else can go through it and find the spot 'causing trouble.
Though, follow the instructions *before* you do any of the SASL
stuff. I've never used SASL, 'cause the TLS authentication was easier
to setup and so I don't know how/whether SASL configuration could
effect my TLS authentication instructions.
