SMTP send relay problem

From the web client, all is well.
From Thunderbird or Outlook Express, receiving mail via pop3 or IMAP is fine. Also sending to local addresses (domains defined in Zimbra) is fine. Outbound email to outside addresses, like hotmail, etc. fail with 'relay denied'.
Because the outbound mail works fine out of the web client, I know the receiving party is accepting mail - no reverse look up problems at their end, etc.
I've tried many combinations of Zimbra settings with no luck. I've read everything I can find in the forums, but can't get it to work.
Anyone have a similar problem they've been able to solve?

and configure your pop/imap client to use smtp authentication when sending.

When I do that, I have a never ending user/password auth loop.

Unless I'm not turning on SMTP auth on the server correctly. How do you do that?

[zimbra@mail ~]$ cat /opt/zimbra/cyrus-sasl/etc/saslauthd.conf

zimbra_url: https://mail.ixxxb.net/service/soap/

zimbra_cert_file: /opt/zimbra/conf/smtpd.crt

zimbra_cert_check: off


I've changed it to
Now">http://
Now
it works! I'll test more, but all looks good.
Thanks a million!

I tried the same thing, but no luck. Keeping getting the relay errors. I changed https to http, in saslauthd.conf and saslauthd.conf.in.
If I don't make the change, it does not work either.
What else am I missing?
Thanks a lot.

Did you restart saslauthd?

Restart saslauthd, but make sure you've got it enabled, too, in the admin UI.
