Yes, I have a pre-existing relationship with them. No, "mydomain.com" is
just a placeholder like "example.com". my actual domain name, paid for by
me,  is registered and hosted by those nice people (i did not want to
advertise the actual domain name) and no, the password is not "passWord". I
was under the impression that I had some kind of rights to use the mail
server for sending mails from squeak and not just using webmail or outlook
express (manually emailing)

You're right there, Tom. I did find a lot of  discussion  regarding this
particular topic but largely these discussions are specific to some mail
servers they are using. I did find the RFC document that mentions the 503
AUTH error and it was a very general document. I was looking for something
relating to Squeak  and seaside because I am sure many Squeakers/Seasiders
have successfully implemented emailing out from Squeak. I would like to know
if anyone has been where I am now and would appreciate their input.
