Not with so little information!  Use the options in your main.cf under
"DEBUGGING CONTROL" to get postfix to log more detail about why it's
failing and then send the list the relevant log messages...

Also, have you checked you can AUTH with those servers manually?  The
article you're using linked http://qmail.jms1.net/test-auth.shtml
which looks a fair enough howto.

Good luck!
