Actually this has nothing to do with postfix.  As you can see by the log
entry I hilited with *'s there is no master password configured for the
user that is being tested.  This causes a failure to authenticate which is
honestly reported back to postfix.

I would suggest getting rid of the master password config or using a
non-master user for testing until you get that portion working.  Then
start debugging with master passwords enabled again.
